What can be done if the executor sells the heir's stock?
March 16, 2005 4:18PM
In most cases the executor of a will by law has to liquidate all nonexempt assets to pay creditors. State probate laws determine which property can be sold to pay the deceased's debts. If it is thought an executor is mishandling an estate, the concerned party should seek legal counsel.
