What To Do if the Trustee Says You Owe Money to the Estate
If you are named as a trustee in someone's will, you may be responsible for distributing their assets to beneficiaries. This includes ensuring that any debts the deceased owed are paid off. If you're told by the trustee that you owe money to the estate, there are a few things you can do.
First, try to negotiate with the trustee. They may be willing to work out a payment plan that works for both of you. If not, your next step is to consult with an attorney. They can help determine if the trustee is acting within their legal rights and if you actually owe the money.
If it turns out that you do indeed owe money to the estate, your options are to either pay it back or have your name removed as a beneficiary. Not paying what you owe could result in legal action being taken against you.
