I know the best answer to this is "ask an attorney" and I do have an appointment with one, but thought I'd ask here. My dad is sole owner of his house, his biggest asset, since my mom died. I'm executor of his will and his POA. I've read that there are expenses that are avoided after his passing if the house has the name of the executor on it. Have no clue if this is true. I'm supposed to sell the house and spilt the proceeds and all other assets equally three ways between my siblings and myself, a task I most definitely do not look forward to! Wondering in advance if there are things I should be considering to make it any easier?
