The executor of my mother's estate says that estate expenses come out of the residuary estate, and since I'm the beneficiary of 65% of the residuary estate (and my brother is beneficiary of 35% of the residuary estate) that the estate expenses will have to be paid 65% by me and only 35%...

The title report will show if the owner has such benefits. Also, tax assessments can change based on the sale...Read more »
