Recently my mother has passed away leaving a NJ property she jointly inherited from my grandmother with 2 other siblings. My grandmother passed away 33 years ago. During that time the property has been maintained by my uncle who is one of the beneficiaries. The property taxes were paid by my mother and me. The executor of this property who is not a beneficiary has not done anything to adhere to his responsibilities as executor. He lives out of state and was a co-executor with my grandfather who also was not a beneficiary and is now deceased. My grandmothers will was probated 33 years ago. The estate has never been settled, obviously. I would like to take over the responsibilities of administrator but the current executor feels he could sell this property and fulfill his responsibities. My questions is there a statue of limitations on how long it should take to finalize and payout all assets. Is there a way to remove this executor because he has neglected his responsibilities?The location of the house is in a very depressed neighborhood. Also, the house is in bad shape. The current executor wants to take his own funds or a lien on the house and fix it up to try add to its value. The house is beyond repair. To fixup the house it would cost $100k. The executor resides in another state and is in his 70's. The beneficiaries just want to sell this house. What can 3 out of the 4 beneficiaries do to stop him? Force him to step down?
