Legal Answers
78 Questions Answered
Q. Can the executor of an estate be from another state? Can the holder of a POA be from another state?
A: Yes, Ohio law allows out of state executors in many circumstances. And, an agent under a POA may live out of state.
Q. In OH, can a Trustee condition receiving a Receipt & Release from beneficiaries prior to final Estate distribution?
A: R.C. 5808.17(C): A release by a beneficiary of a trustee from liability for breach of trust is invalid to the extent that it was induced by improper conduct of the trustee or that the beneficiary, at the time of the release, did not know of the beneficiary's rights or of the material facts relating to the breach. If it's not in the trust document, then I'm not aware of any law that allows the trustee to "require" a release. If it is in the trust document, then I would need to look into whether it's enforceable.
Q. In OH, can a Trustee withhold money, claiming it is an “advancement” of a beneficiary’s inheritance without evidence?
A: This has some serious family drama issues. Can a Grantor verbally amend a trust? Yes under certain circumstances. But the issue is whether this actually happened. Get a lawyer!
