Legal Answers
109 Questions Answered

Q. Reimbursement for extra lot
A: If you had not purchased the lot, then you should have been given an easement over the lot for the leach field. When you purchased the lot, that easement became a moot point. You still purchased rights on that lot that you wouldn't have had even if you got the easement.
Q. In NC how do you handle a wife passing away and 2 weeks later the husband? The wife has no assets but medical bills.
A: Unfortunately, you have to probate both wills, first, all of the wife's property passed to the husband, and then all of the husband's property passed according to his will. Joint checking accounts are an asset that can be brought back into the estate even though they pass outside of the estate. Given the inherent complexity of doing two wills, I highly recommend hiring a probate attorney to assist you in this process.
Q. What is the legal significance of the following phrase in a real estate deed?
A: NC law requires it, it should not change the validity of the deed, however.
