Rocky Face, GA asked in Estate Planning and Real Estate Law for North Carolina

Q: If executor of estate/will does NOT inform 1 of 3 heirs of estate is that illegal?

I've not been informed of estate sale(date) but everything in house is gone. Found out from friend car sold but I've been told nothing. Is this legal? The other 2 heirs are my sister and her son. Sis is executor. What is my recourse on this? Is this breach of contract?

A: If the executor has been appointed by the clerk of court and probate opened, then an inventory of the property should be filed along with periodic accountings. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss further.

Thank you,
