Legal Question

Asked on: 5/19/13, 6:19 am

My mother passed away leaving 5 children as heirs, a savings of $50,000 and a small home that was paid off. One sister is the executor. She and her husband are working on repairing the home for sale, they are paying themselves $20 an hour out of the estate. They have been at this for several months. The house was valued at 50 thousand as it stood, now they have well over that much in their labor and materials and are speculating that the market will improve and they will earn that much back. What is the limit that an executor can pay themselves out of an estate. This is in Arizona. Thank you!
