Alleged Malfeasance by Executors

When an executor of an estate is appointed, they are entrusted to responsibly carry out their duties in an honorable and professional manner. They are responsible for administering assets for the sole benefit of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. Failure to adequately adhere to their prescribed duties, according the the law, the executor may be personally held liable for their malfeasance, and in some cases, may even be held criminally liable.

Malfeasance by executors may be both an intentional or unintentional act. An unintentional act may exist if the executor believes they are acting in the best interest of the beneficiary, when in reality they have inadvertently broken their fiduciary duty or improperly used assets.
In situations which the act or acts of malfeasance by an executor are intentional, the executor may sometimes start out small enough in which their actions initially go undetected. This may go on for some time before the act or acts of malfeasance are brought to light. Other times the act or acts may increase gradually or can occur in one large financial transaction.
Fiduciary fraud may involve financial assets, illegal real estate transactions, or fraud involving personal property.
