A personal representative serves in a fiduciary capacity and is expected to act in a prudent and reasonable manner. The executor is responsible for the following:
• Establishing the probate with the court
• Managing financial accounts
• Selling and purchasing real estate
• Locating assets and missing heirs
• Preparing inventories
• Reviewing claims
• Managing the decedent’s business matters
• Entering into contracts
• Communicating with beneficiaries
Using a Miami probate and estate attorney helps the executor manage time more efficiently and ensures that the probate will be handled in accordance with Florida probate laws. The attorney will be able to appear at court hearings, handle any disputes that arise amongst the beneficiaries or other interested parties and the estate and make sure that estate tax returns are filed on time.
