Maryland Probate Lawyer: Initial Duties of a Personal Representative

After an estate is opened in probate, through the Register of Wills, the Maryland Personal Representative must examine the decedent’s mail, financial records, safe deposit box, important documents and tax returns. It is the Personal Representative’s duty to determine how the property is legally titled by reviewing the ownership documents such as deeds and bank account signature cards. The Personal Representative is permitted, and in most instances can benefit greatly, to have the assistance of a Maryland probate attorney.
