Hi Brian. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today! It will take me just a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Yes, absolutely. As executor of your mom's estate, you have total authority over the estate assets during the administration of the estate. That includes not only the authority, but the obligation, to safeguard the estate and its assets so the estate assets can be used first to pay any outstanding liabilities of your mother and the estate and then to distribute any remaining assets pursuant to the will. Until the title to the house is either sold by the estate or actually transferred to all 3 of you in undivided 1/3 interests, you are the only one with any authority over the estate assets.

Can you elaborate a bit on what you mean by a trust deed. Is the title held in a revocable living trust at the moment? If so, are you the trustee of this trust.
