    Most of the time it's the deceased Will to sell their stuff, isn't it?

    One of my hobbies is fixing and restoring very old antique watches. Many of the ones I restore come from estate sales.

    I make a good bit of money on the ones I sell. The ones I keep are often just too rare and valuable to sell.

    Needless to say, I have a cool watch collection. Ha.

    No you're not the only one. It is sad for the deceased and sometimes for the families. But many times too the money from those sales also pay debts left behind. It is better when buyers do give those items a loving home

    It could be part of their Will, but if they didn't leave one, the estate goes thru probate, an Executor is appointed by the State to handle the deceased's 'accounts'. Possessions are sold to either pay any debts, or given to closest relative or whatever......atleast that is the process here in Washington state

    In France to touch an inheritance we have the right of sucession to the children
    We are inherited Several family houses ( because the other heir is Unfortunately pass away He was young.) with full of objects and memories how to separate from all his objects with memories of the love one. It is impossible and very difficult.
