Unfortunately, the rights of a beneficiary in an estate or trust administration can be violated in a number of ways. This includes the decedent making coerced or inappropriate transfers or gifts during his or her lifetime, or a new Will, Trust or amendment made while incompetent or under the influence, duress or coercion of another.
An executor or trustee can also violate the rights of a beneficiary by self-dealing, commingling estate or trust assets with personal assets, failing to account for estate or trust assets, failing to properly preserve the assets and make them productive, failing to remain impartial in the treatment of the beneficiaries, and failing to allocate or distribute the assets in accordance with the terms of the Will or Trust.
