When a person passes away, the law allows for the creation of an “Estate.” This Estate consists of all property of any kind. A process begins and includes locating, liquidating and otherwise preparing the Estate for distribution. The Estate of a deceased person is distributed according to the terms of a Last Will, or according to NYS Law if no Will exists. The person who is empowered to handle this task is known as an Executor or Administrator. People who receive property from an estate are called legatees or beneficiaries.
