We represent beneficiaries and trustees of estates through the auditing of estate administration (rendering of accounts). If there are controversial items in an estate plan, the trustee of the estate must make a formal presentation of written accounts and the items of controversy during a court hearing.
The court will audit the trustee's accounts to review items of controversy that are challenged by a beneficiary. All account disputes will be ruled upon by the court, which will approve or pass the accounts as submitted by the trustee. Items might also pass with court-directed alterations.
Highly professional and experienced legal representation during the passing or rendering of accounts is critical for protection of your interests and proper administration of the estate. In the Greater Toronto Area, McMaster, McIntyre & Smyth, LLP, has been representing clients through estate administration hearings and distribution procedures for decades. Founded in 1902, our law firm is a family business working for the best interests of your family.
