      My father passed away, I am the executrix of the estate and the will says I should sell the house and then tells me how to distribute the proceeds. But what are the steps to do this? Is the will alone enough for me to take actions on the house, do I sell on behalf of the estate and then sign everything at closing. I am considering hiring a lawyer but the house is really the only asset and there is little equity left due to a home equity line of credit so i would prefer not to incur the expense. But I don’t know if I would need to go to court with these papers to get myself legally put in charge, or if just having the will in hand is enough

      I live in NY state, anyone dealt with this?
