I have a matter in which there are professional executors and one residuary beneficiary, the estate is relatively small and consists of cash only. The beneficiary has failed to respond to any correspondence. An agent was instructed to attend the beneficiary’s property and the agent confirmed that the beneficiary still resided at the property and was receiving correspondence but was not responding. Should the beneficiary continue to not respond are there any options available to the executors other than to pay the residuary estate into court?
