The Hollywood Reporter reported the story in an article titled “Paul Walker’s Estate Sues for Return of More Vehicles Taken After Actor’s Death.”

Actually, these types of situations are not unusual. It is the trusted friends and family members who feel they have an emotional connection to the decedent’s possessions and therefore a right to take them.

Estate administrators are charged with being diligent to ensure that no part of the estate is misappropriated and to seek recovery of anything missing if they think that someone took property or any size or value.

The best way to prevent this kind of unintended gifting? Make a complete list of all items of value – sentimental or financial – that you own and provide this list to your estate attorney.

An experienced estate planning attorney will help make sure nothing is missing or left to chance — from teaspoons to tractors.
