Trustee consulting services
Generally speaking, the responsibilities of the successor trustee of a living trust include the continued management of the trust in case the trust creator should become incapacitated or settling the trust when the grantor has died. More simply put, the successor trustee is “waiting in the wings” to take over the management of the trust when the grantor can no longer do so.
The role of the trustee is complicated, especially for those individuals who are unfamiliar with the detailed and complex laws governing trust administration as well as all of the duties and responsibilities that are involved in administering a trust.
If you are a successor trustee and need advice as to handling the issues that are involved in administering a trust, trustee consulting services can help you better understand the legal fiduciary responsibility that you have to correctly administer the trust while acting in the best interests of the trust beneficiaries.
