Surcharge Imposed for Unjustified Payments

Administrator C.T.A. surcharged for disbursements from estate funds for expenses that appear to be for her own personal use, and for amounts paid to the estate of the decedent’s brother and his widow, but not for amounts paid for repairs to be made to a property co-owned with the decedent’s brother, even though the repairs were apparently never made and the administrator was the victim of a scam, or for amounts paid to a possible contestant to the will.  Commissions paid to the administrator of approximately 6% of the gross estate were reduced by one half.  Hunsicker Estate, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 130 (Monroe Co. O.C. 2017).
