A professional executor in your Will can be of great benefit.

Professionalizing executor services protects against conflict of interest whilst maintain familial relationships and adhering to the Testator’s wishes.

When a person dies without leaving a will, this is referred to as intestacy. Under this circumstance, the person who is appointed to administer the estate is referred to as an administrator, in contrast to an executor who is appointed to administer the estate of someone who died having prepared a will. In an intestate estate, the official document, which is issued by the Court to the Administrator, is called the Letters of Administration.

The trustee is the person or company who legally holds the trust’s assets. The trustee holds those assets as trustee for the trust, for the benefit of the beneficiaries. Typically, the trust deed will outline the trustee’s powers. The trust deed is the formal governing document of the trust.

Gabael Trust is qualified for appointment as attorney for property and affairs for clients who have either no suitable relative or friend to act or who are concerned about conflicts of interest. We act for a number of people who need this sort of help. Sometimes they have no family members who can help them. Sometimes they want to leave their money to family members when they die but are concerned that their money should be spent on the best care for them in their lifetime even if that means their estate is reduced. An independent professional trustee has no such conflict of interest.

Under the Mental Health Act, when somebody lacks the “capacity” to deal with his or her own affairs and has not appointed an attorney, the Court will appoint a manager for his estate.

Gabael Trust is able to act as manager for the estate of such clients and by appointing Gabael Trust, the burden on family and friends can be relieved.
