My father is the executor of his deceased sister's estate. My Uncle died 7 years ago leaving everything to my Aunt who then left it all to be divided between my father and my Uncle's 3 siblings. Unfortunately, my 80 year old father, the sole executor, is now responsible for all of the hard work; cleaning out and selling the house etc. The rest live in Canada. They came down one weekend to take away all the valuables.
I just want to know, how much will he be able to claim as compensation for his time and effort? I want him to get fairly compensated for his troubles. He is already distraught from losing his younger sister. I don't want him to be treated unfairly monetarily. What are his basic legal rights for compensation as an executor in California?
