how can she be named "executor" if there is no will? She thinks the term means that SHE gets to make all the deciisions about everything and that is what irks me. She did not protect my mothers interests when the house was sold; the "cottage" still exists.
If there is no will, I would think all mothers assets (bank accounts, etc) would be denied access to until the matter is straightened out...
I dont think she really knows how complicated the role of executor really is. I just sent her a letter requesting "Full Disclosure". That ought to keep her busy for awhile.
To think, I held her in my arms as our mother lay dying.
An hour later she started with "I decide"..
What about the surviving spouse?
also, I asked her not to dispose of any more of mother's property, which will probably anger her.
What is meant by establishing a "Personal Representative"? (question directed at George Mead)
