If you’ve ever been the executor of an estate, you know the challenge of trying to identify all of the assets in the estate- bank accounts, stocks, property, etc. Even with a well written will, it’s always possible that there may be some assets hidden or undiscovered, waiting to be claimed by rightful heirs.
