How to Settle an Estate: A Manual for Executors and Trustees

by Consumer Reports Books Editor, Charles K. Plotnick

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The chance of being called on to act as executor for a deceased friend or relative is quite high. Intended for the nonlawyer, this book covers every facet of handling an estate, including organ donation, probate, insurance, government benefits, and taxes. Detailed checklists provide a step-by-step guide for the executor to follow in settling an estate. The guide also explains when and how to obtain expert legal and financial advice--and how to negotiate fees for these services. At all times, it emphasizes the importance of minimizing the risk of becoming personally liable for failure to act promptly and in the best interest of the estate and its beneficiaries. Very highly recommended.-- Elizabeth Fielder Olson, Archer & Greiner, Haddonfield, N.J.
