When acting as the Personal Representative of an estate, your conduct must meet a certain standard. In legal terms, you have a duty of care in how you handle things and you owe this duty to all persons interested in the estate. If you do not meet the standard, you will be held personally liable for the losses that occur.
We suggest treating the property as if it were your own. You must act honestly, prudently and to the best of your ability. If you do, it is unlikely that you will be held responsible for things that go wrong.
Here are a list of things you should pay particular attention to when handling an estate.
