What Is Estate Administration?

Estate administration is the process of collecting the property of an estate, paying off all estate debts and taxes and distributing the remaining property to the estate’s beneficiaries.

An estate may go through either formal or informal probate. Formal probate is more costly, but is required in certain situations. Informal probate, on the other hand is faster, and more appropriate for simple estates. We can advise executors and personal representatives about all of their obligations during the administration of an estate.
