The Public Trustee as the representative of a deceased person's estate : Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee

Description

When no appropriate person or corporation is found to handle a deceased person’s estate, the Public Trustee will be called upon as a last resort. When a minor or a represented adult has an interest in a deceased person’s property and financial assets, the Public Trustee may be called upon to be the personal representative of the estate. This happens when there is no will and the minor or represented adult is the closest next-of-kin in Alberta or when an executor cannot be found and no adult beneficiaries are found in Alberta. Find out the steps involved in administering an estate.
