My wife and I were talking about this earlier this morning. She was mentioning that we really need to find someone to be an executor. Because of our situation I don’t see a criticality in this.
we are both the youngest in our respective immediate families and, between us and our siblings, will more than likely be the last to go;
we have no children (we’re in our 50s and approaching 60) though we do have some nieces and nephews, to whom we are not leaving anything;
if Ms Velomont goes first then I’ll obviously be still there to deal with our stuff and conversely if I go first;
if we both go simultaneously, then there will be a house or apartment with stuff in it that some authority(ies) will have to deal with (I recognize that this is probably irresponsible in some fashion)
At the same time I don’t want to screw the taxpayers, so what is the right thing to do? We really don’t have anyone to bequeath our stuff to.
Advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks
