Legal Answers
20 Questions Answered

Q. Can my husband who was named sole beneficiary of mom’s estate in her will sell a property that was missed during probate
A: If there was a residuary clause in the Final Decree which covers "all other property," you should not have to reopen the probate.
Q. Interpreting IRS rules for assigning value to in-kind contributions with a FMV of $500 or less
A: There is an appraisal requirement for all gifts in excess of $5000. That applies to where you give similar items of property where the total value is above $5,000. Six $1,000 items donated would reqire an appraisal. If you haven't already, you will want to contact the fine art museum to make sure they will accept your gifts without an intention of selling them. They may also be able to assit you in your gifting plans. With gifts this size, you should consult with an attorney who specializes in estate planning.
Q. How do I begin fighting a law suit over mineral rights for which I'm a long lost relative of the owner in TX?
A: Quiet title suits can involve a variety of issues. Sometimes they are quite complex. You may have valid defenses to the suit or the suit may have been filed to clear up some ambiguity or inconsistency in the record title. The suit may be establishing the interest of all of the heirs or may be a suit to exclude certain persons from ownership. It is important to determine the size of your interest and what it is worth. When mineral interests are passed down from generation to generation they can become so split up that they have a relatively small value. If a number of the heirs are in the same legal position it can make economic sense to hire the same attorney. You should contact an oil and gas attorney licensed to practice in Texas to review the suit and any supporting documents you have supporting your ownership.
