I am executor of my mothers estate. My mother has passed. My sister is in her will to get the house they were living in and my sister still is living there. In order for my sister to remortage the house she needs to be executor. Can I transfer executor over to my sister? I wont reinstate the house since it is not mine. Also the house is in foreclosure but my sister wants to keep it.
If your sister is named in the will as a backup executor after you, you can file papers with the surrogates court to renounce being executor, and your sister could then serve in your place.
