Excutors Beware

A recent case in Staffordshire has highlighted the risks to family  Executors of Wills . An early distribution of the Estate of her mother to members of the family, after meeting funeral costs , has resulted in a personal liability to the daughter .  It resulted from a late claim on the estate from the Department of Work and Pensions in respect of overpayment of Pension entitlement to the mother for a number of years.

It indicates how important the job of an Executor to a Will is. If Probate is not carried out correctly then the Executors are personally liable for any outstanding liabilities of the Estate of the deceased. Professional help for Probate work can be essential to ensure that such risks do not occur.

Collective Legal Solutions offers fixed fee Probate work which helps Executors to carry out their duties free of worry and concern in administration of a Will.
