Interpretation of Wills, trusts and/or the administration of estates


Trusts and estates are complex species and there are times when interpreting a trust or estate property might be a challenging task. This might be owing to the fact that the language used to describe the trust or estate property is ambiguous or could be interpreted in more than one way.

It is very important that the trust or estate property is ascertained correctly, because if it is not, there will be major consequences for the beneficiaries, who might lose out on what they might have received, or for the Executors, who might be held personally liable for any loss caused to the estate or trust property.

If you are a charity beneficiary and are concerned that you might have lost out on a share of the trust or estate property because of how it was interpreted, or you are a charity executor and are not able to properly ascertain the trust or estate property, either way you will need to seek some legal advice.

We can provide you with clarification in relation to a trust or estate property and advise you if any mistake has been made and how it can be rectified in order to avoid potential dispute, loss or liability.

We are always happy to talk on an initial no obligation and informal basis so please email or call one of the team.
