Decedent

By on August 18, 2018

A decedent is a legal term used to refer to one who has died.

The word is most often used when describing the estate of a deceased person.

For example:

His children who are the beneficiaries of his estate have yet to file the tax returns of the decedent.

Trustees play an important role in executing the wishes of the decedent regarding the distribution of his estate, whether it’s via a will or trust.

Decedent estate law deals with everything from the preservation, disposition, and collection of real estate and personal property that once belonged to a decedent.
