Customer Question
In the case that...

In the case that sale of property is handled by executor named in a wil, executor lives in another state.....how much on the ground is needed or can processing be handled without executor being in state of ca.?

Lawyer's Assistant: What confuses you?

Does executor need to be available in person according to law in Ca?

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No....will has been drawn up and before it is finalized i need info regarding who is named as executor.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That should cover it. thx

In California there is no requirement that the Executor be present in the State.

"California Restrictions on Out-of-State Executors

Unlike many other states, California does not impose special requirements on executors who live out of state." https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/california-restrictions-who-can-serve-executor.html

You are correct an Executor's deed can be used for the sale of real property and all documents for closing can be handled by the escrow agency.
