My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: CA
Estate consists of $150K manufactured home (MH) and some personal belongings. Will identifies two of four siblings as co-executors. Estate proceeds to be shared equally among all siblings. Will was never probated. CA allows title transfer of MH from deceased to siblings through CA HCD (475.2) without going through probate. As I understand it, co-executors, as identified in the will, are not legally such if the will is not probated. Questions: Is this true? Do the co-executors, as identified in the will, still have the authority to administer the estate? Are they also legally entitled to executor fees under CA probate code?
