The Executor's Handbook, Third Edition is a step-by-step guide to settling an estate for personal representatives, administrators, and beneficiaries.
|Author||: Mary Randolph|
Millions of baby boomers are currently (or will soon be) serving as executors, and this book shows exactly what to do to make the job manageable.
|Author||: Douglas D. Wilson|
|Editor||: Simon and Schuster|
Offers information for executors and trustees on carrying out the terms of a will or trust, including assest distribution, terminating existing accounts, opening an estate bank account, and closing the estate.
|Author||: David E. Edey|
David Edey wants to save you a lot of trouble! In this self-help book he clearly, concisely, and repeatedly explains why it is important that every individual appoint an executor of their estate; what it means to be an executor of an estate; and how having a knowledgeable and responsible executor can help ensure a family’s wealth, welfare, health, and future happiness. The book is filled with advice, tips, and many real-life examples demonstrating what can go wrong (and what can go right), depending on whether or not families plan accordingly in advance, communicate clearly with one another, and are willing to put petty and selfish differences aside. No one likes talking about death and inheritances before they absolutely have to, but as Edey learned from personal experience, having these conversations earlier, rather than later, will save a lot of time and money, alleviate a ton of stress and ill feeling, and ensure that the deceased’s wishes are properly and efficiently carried out.

Have you been named as an executor of a will or just want to know what the process of estate administration from a practical standpoint is all about? Then read on!This book is for meant to help those who have been named as an executor, for someone who has asked a loved one in to be in charge of their estate or for one who just generally wants to know what the process of closing an estate is all about. It has some technical elements, like how to sell or transfer stock and – but the real value of the book is setting expectations. It includes advice such as; making the funeral arrangements, dividing up the jewelry and selling the furniture. More importantly, it gives the first time executor enough information so they can be conversant when talking to lawyers, accounts and beneficiaries. That's the main reason this book is different than others – it has more of the practical versus the legalese. It basically helps someone who's never been an executor before or hasn't been exposed to the process and needs a little bit of help to carry out the wishes of a loved one. It's about things like; how long the process will take, fairness with beneficiaries, what curveballs might be thrown your way and what some of the pitfalls that might be encountered. For example, you should be aware that some insurance companies will drop homeowners insurance or not honor the policy if the house is vacant for an extended period of time. Again, that's where the value of this book is, eliminating some of those first time “unknowns” of being the executor of an estate. There is also a short “What should I do if?” chapter to answer questions such as; what if someone else wants to be the executor, if someone sues the estate, if the beneficiaries don't want to sign the refunding bonds, etc…In addition to the practical help, this book can help save you some fees when you administer the estate. You can close bank accounts, close insurance policies, transfer stock, send refunding bond notices, and file the will for probate by yourself. All those things are not hard to do, they're mostly administrative in nature and can be handled by a layperson. The idea is to let the lawyers focus on their areas of expertise while you focus on those administrative items.

Many of you, regardless of your feelings on the matter, will eventually be appointed as executor of your parents’, spouse’s, or another’s estate. Just calling an attorney isn’t enough. Settling a decedent’s estate may require the combined expertise of accountants, appraisers, auctioneers, realtors, bankers, brokers, insurance companies, a myriad of bureaucrats, and, yes, even lawyers. Where do you start? How do you empty a house crammed with a lifetime’s worth of knick-knacks, bad art, and unopened mail? How do you deal with long-lost relatives who think you’re taking too long or charging too much? And how do you oversee those professionals who know so much more than you about the process? The Essential Executor’s Handbook not only explains the steps involved in settling an estate, but it shows you how to get all these professionals to do the work for you. You will learn everything you need to know about the basic laws and procedures involved; all the legal definitions you could possibly want; and why each professional is necessary, what they do, what they charge, and where to find them. No matter how little you know about law, accounting, and the rest, The Essential Executor’s Handbook will lead you by the hand through the settlement process.

The world has gone digital and so have our clients’ estates. Digital assets may simply be electronic records, but they are the digital gateway to our lives. They are our memories, our money, and our records, making technology the new player at the estate planning table. The Digital Executor®: Unraveling the New Path for Estate Planning arms estate advisors, business owners, service providers, and the broader estate and technology industries with heightened awareness of client expectations regarding their digital estates. Everyone needs a will and in today’s age of digitization, estate plans must include your client's digital life. This book is a primer for understanding a client’s personal use case when navigating estate management in the digital age with introductions to technology and the underlying aspects and differences between digital asset classes. With technology being the new player at the client’s estate planning table, estate advisors must be educated, motivated, and prepared, adapting policies and processes for operating in the digital world. Equally, technology and service providers must align with the stars to be integrated partners in estate industry conversations. Sharon’s first book, Your Digital Undertaker: Exploring Death in the Digital Age in Canada, was about digital assets in the context of an individual’s or client’s estate planning life cycle. This follow-up book, Digital Executor®: Unraveling the New Path for Estate Planning is about digital assets in the context of the estate industry. This book draws the reader into the world of estate planning with a digital twist, bringing together how the global estate industry, technology and service providers must address client expectations about their digital assets and the implications of the changing role of the fiduciary/executor. To understand the role of digital assets in the estate industry, we must first understand technology, the client’s user context, and the changing role of the estate advisor. From an estate industry perspective, if today’s executor is a digital executor and today’s fiduciary is a digital fiduciary, then today’s advisor must be a digital advisor.

The executor's job is much more involved than you might initially believe. At its simplest, the executor's role involves documenting assets of the deceased, paying the bills for the estate, and distributing assets to the rightful beneficiaries. These in themselves are not simple tasks, and there are many more to come.
