I would like to know how to go about winding up my uncle’s estate after having received a vague explanation of the process.
He passed away in 1989 and my mother initially held the position of executrix, but she died before completing the process. So I was recently appointed executor.
I made certain inquiries at the Master’s office in connection with the winding-up process, but that has not clarified the position to my satisfaction.
Executor of Estate
Ed’s note: In a second but related situation, a reader wants to know how to change the title deed of the house in which her stepfather lived with her mom to reflect her name. Her mother passed away and was married in community of property. The stepfather would now like to “give” the house to her.
See what the experts have to say.
