The norm is the gross value. Some times for family harmony some executors do it on net value.
Executors can take a yearly commission if the estate goes over one year, on the income earned
during that year. Again, some executors waive it.
On my profile there are several legal guides. I recommend reviewing the following which may be helpful to you:
