After dealing with the safe deposit box, I began the process of selling the rental property by informing the tenants of the eventual sale. Since the tenants lived in the rental home for twenty years in good standing, I knew this task would be tough. In earlier calls to the tenants, they repeatedly told me that they wanted to stay in the house. The tenants had raised a family in the home and had many good memories to just pick up and move. So, I dreaded this task of informing the tenants of the sale from the day I was officially appointed executor back in November 2012.
