- Some of the beneficiaries are not given an inventory of the property
• Claims of undue influence
• One of the beneficiaries enjoying the full benefits
• Guardianships and conservatorships
• Beneficiary failing to do his or her fiduciary duties
• Details about the creditors not disclosed
• Dispute over the personal representative
