Atty said I could negotiate but get any figures in writing. He said nothing of paying myself as executor, and I was appointed executor. This estate did not go through probate so can I still pay myself a fee? Executor fee was not listed on the statute of priority claims.
In error, at closing, the bank took $547 out of proceeds of the sale and put it into escrow to pay insurance that has now been cancelled. Since it was taken out of proceeds, technically I did not pay this in and it will be refunded. Is this my money or fall under the estate?
