Q: Judge has just granted me Admin. with full authority to manage estate BUT I'm confused bcuz the bank accts are blocked.

So what do i do about the bank accts being blocked? The Order does say FULL AUTHORITY to manage UNDER THE ESTATE ACT. Seems contradicting to me. Is this normal? Or is there a step I'm missing to get those bank accts unblocked?

Q: My sister is sole heir for an estate. The lawyer(executor) has not given her any information on the estate .

She has not had the will shown to her nor seen what bills need to be paid, what has been paid. He wants to sell the house and the contents. Should she get her own lawyer to make sure he is doing nothing underhand? He had been in trouble years ago for ripping off a client.
