Q. Im a beneficiary of a trust, and never received a copy. How do I find out who the trustee is, and how to contact.
A: Unfortunately trusts are usually private and usually no public record of their content exists. There are some requirements of the trustee that require notice to be sent to all beneficiaries and heirs and if you are named in the trust you do have a right to a copy of it. I would be curious to know how you found out about the terms of the trust. Maybe whoever told you those details has more information on the trustee. In addition, if there was real property owned by the trust you should be able to tell who the trustee is by pulling the title report if the property was sold after death.
Q. Brother lived/died in Ca. Had bank accts in Ca<$166k & NJ about $90K +small IRA. Is small estate w/o admin only needed?
A: I agree with Mr. Palley. The value should be calculated by all accounts your brother owned, not just ones in California. However, the small estate affidavit is a CA law and you might be hard pressed to get a bank in NJ to follow that law. There may be a different process for assets in NJ.
Q. in CA, do i still have to do probate if all my grandma owned was her home? im on the deed already
A: It depends exactly how you are on the deed. If you are named as joint tenants then most likely you will not need to go through probate. If it says anything besides joint tenants then you might need probate.
