    Default California Probate Attorney's Fees

    I know that the fees are statutory, but I don't know when they are paid. We have some real property in California (vacant lot) that we inherited when my mother in-law died intestate in Florida. We opened the ancillary estate in California well after the Florida estate had closed. Now the California estate is about to close but the property has not been sold (imagine that, in this market ).

    So, the big question is:
    As there is no money in the estate, will we have to pay the attorneys fees and costs out of our own pocket when the estate closes in a couple of weeks, or will we pay when the property sells?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Attorney fees are payable when the estate closes.
