  • Executor conduct

    My sister is executor. She and my brother, also executor will receive an extra 10 percent share for serving in that role. I am in Virginia USA. My question is- is this normal or should I be concerned?- my sister hasnít officially notified the corporation my father owned stock in, yet. He died April 8, 2023, and it is now Aug. 28. She says she is busy, she went on two vacations. Meanwhile, I am on disability and currently unable to work, and she was advised by the lawyer she could sell and put proceeds into the estate account, and then distribute them. I am at the point of never speaking to her again, since she has failed to act or explain, despite my inquiries. I am very tempted to take an inheritance advance, introduce a third party company interest, so she is eventually forced to sell the jointly owned house, which she has stated she wants to live in ďfor a while.Ē I donít have money for an attorney, until she sells the stock. Should I just accept her conduct as acceptable? My brother is a lap dog who does whatever she says. At this point, I never want to speak with them again. It goes back further when they say I am crazy (I am a veteran with PTSD), and my father was abusive towards me and my mother (I was the oldest child). My father didnít bother discussing any of his financial stuff or even to name beneficiaries except to put that the three kids inherit all he owns. (1/3, 1/3, 1,3). My sister did file for probate. And an accounting is being submitted. She claims she is too busy. I came here to help clean out the huge 5-bedroom house, which I did until she said to stop, she may want to live in the house. I cleaned out the closets and paid with a small inherited life insurance proceed to get across the US to help. My brother offered to use funds to pay my way back home, but my sister said no. I saved enough gas money now to get home, sleeping in my car.

      It seems there might be basic principles or common law principles to help??

        You would be unwise to count on that. Seek advice in your state.
