Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
You're going to have a claim for breach of fiduciary duty against your administrator. The estate is not his personal piggy bank and the fact that he sent you a Notice of Action for your consent to the original sale evidences his awareness he needed to get your consent to a sale of the property. The fact that he then sold it for less than the sale you approved provides you with the breach of fiduciary duty cause of action. I would send him a letter by certified mail setting forth the foregoing and demand he personally make up each beneficiary's share of the $5,000 shortfall within a short specified period of time. If he fails to comply, file a petition with the probate court for the damages and to have him removed as administrator.
