The application for probate or the administration of an estate does not always run smoothly. Occasionally, disputes will arise which can slow the process down or put it on hold altogether.
This section outlines the disputes that may arise during the administration of an estate and how they can be dealt with. The disputes may be between the executors (if more than one executor has been appointed), between the executor and the beneficiaries, or between the beneficiaries themselves.
In the future we will be covering the following topics:
- Executors behaving badly: can an executor be removed from their duties?
- What happens if more than one executor has been appointed under the will and they cannot agree?
- What is the process to deal with an uncooperative executor?
- Disputes between beneficiaries
