  1. uhuhuhuh

    If the will gives the executor the power to sell, they have no legal obligation to consult anyone. that’s kind of the point of having an executor who is NOT a beneficiary.

    A life tenant can always deed out an interest to sell.

    “while it is not permited in the original will?” makes little sense. If there is a problem with execution, talk to a probate lawyer


  2. Depends on what is stated in the will and the intent of the power of attorney. The executor cannot make money from the sale, it goes to the trust.


  3. If the Power of Attorney empowers the agent to deal at his will, then he need not get consent. So you have to check the conditions of Power of Attorney !
