The Excutor is responsible for damange to all property, keeping records of spending for funeral costs, etc., out of the Estate. Technically, the only people that should be allowed on that property is the Executor and the beneficiaries or a real estate agent. Eventually the Will goes into Probate where all creditors will be paid off, all property taxes, personal taxes, etc., and what is left in the Estate will be divided amongst the beneficiaries. It is also customary for the beneficiaries (if not mentioned in the Will) to give 1 1/2% - 3% (can go up to 5%, but a judge would question this) to the Executor of the Will. Being Executor can be a tough job and lots of red tape even if the Estate is on the small side. If the Estate is small then 1 1/2 - 2% is customary, and if it's a large percent then 2 1/2% - 3%. The Executor can have friends on the premises, but is 100% responsible for any damage or missing articles from that Estate. The Executor should let the beneficiaries know, and thus, the beneficiaries should let the Executor know if they have friends on the property. It's a good idea to take a video of each room, any jewelry, art, etc. before anyone goes onto the property besides the Executor or beneficiaries.

What are your legal rights as heir to an estate in Connecticut when the executor is not communicating with the heirs and you feel that some actions are questionable?

I feel the executor has full power over the heirs! Implead into the probate proceedings started up by the executor and question the anomalities you have seen or apprehend. Whatever be it, remember that the executor is the legal representative of the deceased for all purposes, and all the property of the deceased vests in him as such. Therefore before going into a protracted legal battle, it would be best to question the executor in a private fashion; through common known friends; through the church; whatever means other than adversarial proceedings through the court. Just because, the executor is appointed by the deceased, effective from the date of death of deceased, and if you blow your cool and unnecessarily, even unwittingly antagonize the executor, you waste time, and a lot of time in meaningless philanderings in court proceedings. This should be always avoided. Approach; Question; Argue the matter; Compromise; Settle (whether it is even to a minor loss); but close the matter at the earliest. Take what is your bequest; invest it sensibly; and continue your life outside the court. Or you will see a living hell of court, within your life.

Can you legally drive a friend's car if you are under your parent's insurance and said car is insured by your friends family?

If your mom dies - and you are the executor what do you do next?

If your mother owned any property in her own name then her estate must be probated. You are not an executor until you have been officially appointed by the probate court. You should contact an attorney who specializes in probate. You should ask friends, family members, neighbors and co-workers if they had a good experience with any probate lawyers in your area. There are so many it is a good idea to see if someone you know can make a referral before you hire a stranger. If no one can make a referral you can speak to two or three to find one you feel comfortable with.
