Legal Answers
Q. What is included in a list of personal property when you are the administator in an estate
A: No, you do not "have to give away" your husband's drums, jewelry and other personal effects. You do have to list those items on both the initial inventory and the "90-day" inventory, along with the fair market value of those items.
