San Diego Trust Accountings

Periodic accountings are often required for estates, guardianships, conservatorships, and trusts, whether or not they are court-supervised. At Brierton, Jones & Jones, LLP, we counsel clients on both sides—those who prepare the accountings and those who receive them.

What Are Accountings, Exactly?

Accountings are a detailed record of all of the income and expenses for an estate or trust, or other form of legal binding, such as a conservatorship. Maintaining accurate records is paramount to ensure the funds are being handled correctly, and according to the law.

If You Need Help With Accountings

If you’re a trustee, guardian, conservator or agent, we’ll counsel you on:

  • Proper recordkeeping
  • Considerations for limiting liability exposure
  • Required disclosures
  • The consequences of failing to properly account

And we’ll provide you with an analysis of the accountings

If You’re a Client Entitled to Accountings

We’ll counsel you regarding:

  • Your rights to receive accountings
  • The steps to enforce your rights to receive accountings if the fiduciary is not providing it to you
  • The time period you have to object to acts or inactions by the fiduciary

And we’ll provide you with an analysis of accountancy.
