Estate Administration What exactly is estate administration? This is a question that you may find you are asking yourself if you have just lost a loved one. Estate administration is the process of carrying out a deceased person’s wishes as stated in their Will or Trust. It also involves making sure that the deceased person’s assets are transferred to the beneficiaries as smoothly as possible.
