This answer was rated:

My brother passed intestate in Georgia and there is a personal representative appointed. At what point should I expect to see an inventory and how often should I see reports. I am the surviving heir.
Also, how much personal time is the PR allowed to claim for working on the case. It is my understanding that he expects the allowed % of money in and out plus all his time and travel working on the case.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response.

I am sorry to hear about the passing of your brother. I hope you and your family only the best.

You should receive an inventory rather quickly (1 to 2 months at most). You should also receive a monthly accounting of the estate (although you can certainly request one more often, at most every other week).

Georgia has one of the more specific set of statutes surrounding executor compensation, Georgia sets compensation (if not set by the decedent) to:

  • 2.5% of cash received
  • 2.5% of cash disbursed
  • a reasonable fee not to exceed 3% of the value of other assets disbursed (the larger the estate, the smaller the percentage, with estates typically reaching into the $Ms before the percentage drops below 3%)
  • 10% on all interest earned on money loaned to the estate by the executor

The court can also allow additional compensation for "extraordinary" services.

See § l53-6-60 of the Georgia Revised Probate Code of 1998 for details.
