What is Estate Administration?
Estate Administration is a broad term to describe the necessary legal actions to settle someone's affairs after death. An Estate is a new legal entity that is formed when some dies and describes what was owned by the decedent, has a new tax identification number while the estate is being administered, and has a responsible party that will pay the decedent's final claims and expenses, collect the assets, and ultimately distributes the decedent's assets to the proper heirs. Some types of Estate Administration are:
Informal Estate Administration.
Ancillary Estate Administration.
Depending upon the decedent's assets and how the decedent held ownership of the assets, the Estate may require all or some combination of these types of Estate Administration.
