Fort Wayne, IN asked in Probate for Indiana

Q: Is it legal for executor to lessen assets because she moved into home, and saved RE commission?

Sister-executor of deceased dad's estate--moved into dad's house-mtg free. Her atty sent statement re: his assets--which stated because she moved in, the money saved due to no RE commission will be taken off his assets? Doesn't make sense to me, as that has nothing to do w/his assets.

Thank you

A: That doesn't make sense to me, either. You should hire a probate attorney to represent your interests in the probate of your dad's estate. Rogue executors can get away with a lot of crazy things if nobody objects. It might be time for someone like you to watch the henhouse.
