North Royalton OH Trustee Duties Attorney

North Royalton Lawyers Experienced in Creating and Handling of Trusts

Trustees are not always aware of the extent of their responsibilities with regard to trust administration. For example, there are strict timelines that need to be met, income taxes need to be filed, debts need to be paid off, and the Trust assets need to be sold or distributed. Trust and probate administration can be complicated for someone who may never have had contact with the process before.

When trustees do not fulfill their legally designated role, either because they are unaware of the extent of their duties, or because they are willfully delaying the closing of an estate, disputes can and do arise among family members. As a trustee, you may be personally liable for financial loss caused by neglect or breach of your duties.
