When agreeing to act as the executor of an estate, many Florida residents may not know exactly what they are getting into. The overall probate process can be complicated for anyone, and some estates may have assets that make settling affairs even more difficult, like houses that need to be sold. Handling real estate when closing an estate can be a complex aspect of this process.
Florida residents and people across the country often put off important tasks because they believe they can complete them later or that they are not necessary to complete. Commonly, this belief can stem from the fact that many individuals have the wrong information regarding important life steps, such as estate planning. Too many people continue to believe that they do not need estate plans or that they can get away with putting minimal effort into planning, and that can cause problems.
