I’m the executor of my mother’s estate. The language used in her will sounds to me like her estate will not go into probate. Is that possible?
I'm my mother's only child. Her will explicitly says she's leaving everything to me. Her will grants the executor the continuing absolute, discressionary power to deal with any property held in her estate as freely as she might in the handeling of her own affairs. Such powers may be exercised independently and without prior or subsequent approval of any court of judicial authority, and no person deaing with the executor shall be required to inquire into the propriety of any of his actions. Without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing, she granted the Executor al the powers set forth in NC General Statute, Section 32-27 and such powers are intended to be in addition to and not in substitution of the powers confered by law.
