In Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty's latest report, readers will also learn about the process of appointing an administrator or executor for the deceased's estate and their responsibilities in handling the inherited assets.

The death of a loved one is an emotional time, and dealing with the various administrative tasks such as planning a funeral and handling their estate can often be overwhelming. Furthermore, should a family member pass without leaving a will, there are additional legal challenges regarding the administration and distribution of their estate. To provide a clear picture of how probate can help address these issues, Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty compiled its guide on the process.

As the probate process is something individuals will only come across following a family member’s passing, the report initially explains what probate is to enable readers to make an informed decision regarding their inherited estate.

Written by Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty’s probate specialist Marc Cormier, the guide then outlines the legal responsibilities of an executor’s role in the probate process. This includes taking inventory of the deceased's estate, paying any associated debts, and distributing assets in accordance with the departed’s will or Virginia state laws if one is not present.

Having been working in the real estate industry since the age of 21, Marc Cormier has over ten years of realtor and probate experience which has seen him gain recognition as a ‘Top 1% Realtor’ by his peers. Alongside his work as a realtor, Cormier also makes accessible a wide range of resources and educational material for those seeking information regarding all aspects of the probate process and the associated laws.

When speaking about the probate process, Cormier said, “The Virginia laws concerning the administration of estates contain more than 200 sections. Contacting an experienced estate and probate attorney can help you navigate through the maze of applicable laws.”
