Does the named executor of a Will and estate have to file official paperwork before doing anything with the assets?
One of my siblings was listed executor of our grandmother's estate. Grandma passed away a few months ago and this sister has not filed any paperwork including the Will, nor will she share it with anyone else, supposedly due to directions from the Will. Expensive items from Grandmas home are now in this sister's home, without any discussion or notice to the rest of us. She has been paying neighborhood association fees, utility bills, and such for grandma's properties, as well as altering payment plans for grandmas several rental properties. Is any of this even legal? We are afraid for her.
