My mother will be going into a home shortly. Besides her physical state, her mental state is not good. She is married to my step-dad. Her home, and all of it's contents are owned by her estate. The only things that my step-dad owns in the home are his personal belongings. My mother was/is a hoarder. There is sooooo much stuff in her home. The executor of her estate told me that when she goes into a home, then he'd like to get started on removing the excess from her home........and of course keeping whatever needs to stay so my step-dad can live there. Once my mother passes, then my step-dad, per the estate, is allowed to stay in the home for six months then he needs to leave so the home can be sold.
A friend of mine says that the executor of the estate needs to get my mothers permission before anything can be removed from the home. Well, ok, but here's the deal. My mother is not in her right mind. My friend then said that the executor of her estate then needs to go to my mother's attorney and ask the attorney about this.
I don't get this. If everything in the home except her husband's personal property is owned by the estate, then why couldn't the executor go into the home and at least get started on the process??????????
