Does an executor of a Will need to tell beneficiaries about the deceased's undistrbuted property?
My father died in 2004. My uncle (his brother) is executor. The Will was never probated - all of the estate was distributed to my fathers 4 kids equally. My grandparents Will was never probated. Their home is now being sold to my cousin (my father's executor's daughter.) 1/5 of this property belongs to my dad and now to my siblings and I. My uncle now wants to probate my dad's Will so that he can sell this house to his daughter. My uncle will not tell us about how much he is selling it to his daughter. We also just found out about other property my father owns jointly with others that was not transferred. Can he have a conflict of interest? Should we speak to a probate attorney abut this? We're in Erie County, NY.
