    I’ve got some serious reservations about the distribution of a will that was meant to be split amongst the surviving children...

    What evidence does the executor need to provide about the administration of the deceased estate?

    What can be done if it’s later found out one of the executors was involved in unconscionable conduct? How long do I have to make a complaint? It’s not about wanting more money it’s about getting justice for what I feel is manipulative conduct and maladministration.

    Thanks team...

    What does the Will say re distribution?

    Executors have a range of fiduciary and statutory duties regarding the administration of an estate and there are a range of remedies available if an executor is found to be in breach of their duties. Regarding the timing of making a complaint/instituting proceedings, much will depend on when the alleged breach took place/when you became aware of the breach.
