Independent administration of estates

In some circumstances, it may be appropriate for an independent administrator to be appointed to deal with the administration of the estate.  For instance, a named executor in a will may have pre-deceased or be unwilling to act or there may be a dispute between executors or family members which is causing delays to the administration.

Equally, if the deceased did not have a will and died intestate, there may be multiple beneficiaries entitled to apply for the grant of letters of administration.  In these types of scenarios, the B P Collins Trust Corporation Limited can be appointed as administrators to act independently of all parties and deal with the formalities on behalf of the beneficiaries of the estate.  This could be by way of a court order or by mutual consent of all the parties.

Certainly if there is a dispute or lack of agreement between beneficiaries, this could be a suitable way forward and our team of probate specialists will be able to provide you with further information on a solution.
