(located in NY) My dad is the executor of a lady who just died. When she made the will, she was a millionaire but she needed 24/7 care for 15 years and exhausted her funds. The house has a reverse mortgage and will be given to the lender soon.
The lady died with $700 and nothing of value in the house. Medicaid was paying for the home care and she got food stamps. Her SS barely covered the utilities and taxes. She was BROKE
My dad already paid her funeral out of his pocket. I'm worried that he's going to be guilted into more of this bc he's not knowledgeable about the procedure. The lawyer who drafted the will has died.
Any idea of what he should do without him paying for it bc tbh he can't afford it.
I've tried researching it but I only get results for an insolvent estate where there's not enough to satisfy everyone but I can't find information about someone who has NOTHING!
I'm already upset that he paid 3k he doesn't have for a funeral but I understand he feels a moral responsibility. I just don't want him making any more payments or something to jam himself up.
