aunt left me her house and all the contents of the house. The executor has been going through the house, taking items and won’t give me a key. It is in probate now. What are the laws on getting a key?
The job of the executor of a will is to gather together all of the information about the assets and liabilities of the estate. You are apparently mentioned in your aunt’s will as inheriting her house and “all of its contents”. The executor should be going through the house with you to itemize all of those contents and ensuring that nothing goes missing before probate has been granted. You can approach the probate court (with your own lawyer) to report that items are missing from the house. The executor would be responsible for explaining what happened to the missing items. You won’t get a key to the house until probate has been granted. This is a fine example of an improperly written will. Stating the disposal of a house and mentioning “all of its contents” is too vague and subject to mis-interpretation. Anyone wanting this sort of bequest in their will should be advised to be more specific in their treatment of “contents” of a house.
