Sometimes things go wrong with regard to estates. Individuals may remove assets that belong to the estates. Executors and / or administrators may improperly seize assets from an estate for his or her own personal financial benefit. In other situations, family members remove assets from the home of the deceased that they shouldn’t. Assets can also be lost or misplaced or the fiduciary may have failed to obtain these assets.
