Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Is it possible to make a claim for past due rent which adds up to several thousand dollars since the estate has been in probate for a few years?
How would a non-executor of the estate make demand for past due rent and future rent as it is expected the probate case will endure for another year and expenses will continue to accrue.
Can I also ask for interest on past due rent and if so, what would be a an acceptable percent with the court (example being 10% with monthly accrual)? What is common?
What would be the process to demand and obtain future rent? How would the collection of rent be set-up with the courts? How would we know the rent was being paid/not paid?
