PROBATE CODE
SECTION 8800-8804




8800.  (a) The personal representative shall file with the court
clerk an inventory of property to be administered in the decedent's
estate together with an appraisal of property in the inventory. An
inventory and appraisal shall be combined in a single document.
   (b) The inventory and appraisal shall be filed within four months
after letters are first issued to a general personal representative.
The court may allow such further time for filing an inventory and
appraisal as is reasonable under the circumstances of the particular
case.
   (c) The personal representative may file partial inventories and
appraisals where appropriate under the circumstances of the
particular case, but all inventories and appraisals shall be filed
before expiration of the time allowed under subdivision (b).
   (d) Concurrent with the filing of the inventory and appraisal
pursuant to this section, the personal representative shall also file
a certification that the requirements of Section 480 of the Revenue
and Taxation Code either:
   (1) Are not applicable because the decedent owned no real property
in California at the time of death.
   (2) Have been satisfied by the filing of a change in ownership
statement with the county recorder or assessor of each county in
California in which the decedent owned property at the time of death.



8801.  If the personal representative acquires knowledge of property
to be administered in the decedent's estate that is not included in
a prior inventory and appraisal, the personal representative shall
file a supplemental inventory and appraisal of the property in the
manner prescribed for an original inventory and appraisal. The
supplemental inventory and appraisal shall be filed within four
months after the personal representative acquires knowledge of the
property. The court may allow such further time for filing a
supplemental inventory and appraisal as is reasonable under the
circumstances of the particular case.



8802.  The inventory and appraisal shall separately list each item
and shall state the fair market value of the item at the time of the
decedent's death in monetary terms opposite the item.



8803.  On the filing of an inventory and appraisal or a supplemental
inventory and appraisal, the personal representative shall, pursuant
to Section 1252, mail a copy to each person who has requested
special notice.


8804.  If the personal representative refuses or negligently fails
to file an inventory and appraisal within the time allowed under this
chapter, upon petition of an interested person:
   (a) The court may compel the personal representative to file an
inventory and appraisal pursuant to the procedure prescribed in
Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 11050) of Part 8.
   (b) The court may remove the personal representative from office.
   (c) The court may impose on the personal representative personal
liability for injury to the estate or to an interested person that
directly results from the refusal or failure. The liability may
include attorney's fees, in the court's discretion. Damages awarded
pursuant to this subdivision are a liability on the bond of the
personal representative, if any.
