An administrator of estate is appointed by the probate court to manage the deceased person’s state. If the decedent left a will, the estate will be administered by the will executor they named. However, in the absence of a will, the probate court will appoint an administrator from the decedent’s next of kin, usually the surviving spouse or child.
The administrator’s duties are numerous and can take years to complete. Estate administrators are primarily responsible for initiating the probate process, creating an inventory of the deceased person’s assets and property, locating beneficiaries, distributing the assets to heirs and beneficiaries, and settling outstanding debts or taxes.
However, estate administrators don’t have to handle the process alone. If you were named or appointed as an administrator of estate, you can hire professionals to assist in carrying out your duties.
