Acting as the executor of a loved one's estate is not an easy task. Even steps that may seem simple can present complications depending on the circumstances. For instance, during probate administration, it is the duty of the executor to find all of the decedent's assets so that the property can be put to use in paying necessary expenses and so that it can be properly distributed when that time comes. Of course, many Texas executors may wonder how to find all of the assets.
Certainly, if a loved one was not forthcoming with information about his or her belongings and had numerous accounts, an executor may not know where to start looking for property. If a person is looking to determine whether a loved one held any real estate, it may help to check the county assessor's website. This site may allow the executor to search for the decedent's name to determine whether any real estate was owned in the area.
