Q. My father passed away in 2012 in Florida and i didnt get any inheritence. What can I do?
A: I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sure you are looking for closure. Your inheritance would depend upon whether there was a Will and the nature of the assets left. Most assets are transferred outside of probate if the accounts are properly designated and titled. It's possible there was no probate. If there wasn't a Will, the surviving spouse has the most rights according to Florida law. That's the best answer I can offer you without knowing what assets were left and how they were held. Hope it helps!
Q. Question below
A: There is no way to guarantee a modification will be granted by your lender, especially without having any knowledge of your debt and income. I would recommend scheduling a consultation.
Q. I have been named in my deceased mothers foreclosure case I have signed no documents for beneficiary or heir
A: I'm sorry for your loss. If you did not sign any Note or personal guaranty and you have no interest in retaining the property, you will not be affected by any judgment that is entered to foreclose, however, it is best that you file a response so that you keep informed of all activity as the case progresses. If you are to inherit the property and you want to keep the home, you will need to take other action to protect your rights.
Q. Are there specific pieces of property that aren't subject to probate?
A: Generally the only way to transfer property when the owner passes away is probate. The exceptions wouldn’t relate to the type of property, but rather how the property is legally held. This could be specific language in a deed or if property was held in trust, you may be able to avoid probate.
Q. Property sold, lien not honored. What recourse do I have?
A: If you were named as a junior lienholder in a foreclosure action and the foreclosure sale is complete, your rights to collect against that property have been extinguished. Even though the property has been foreclosed, you still have rights to collect under the judgment, so your best bet will be to pursue collections that way.
Q. I purchased a house in FL, but I noticed that they did not put my wife's as co-owner and her name is not on the deed.
A: Your homestead could pass to your surviving spouse through probate, but if there are children from another marriage, they would have an interest also. A simple quit claim deed might solve your problems, but you might want to schedule a consultation with an estate planning attorney to discuss your particular details.
Q. Purchasing a home from a couple that has QC joint tenants ownership deedof home. Recently, one owner has added her son
A: If you are purchasing a home privately, you will want to be sure to have a title search done to identify the exact ownership and any liens that may attach. There is no way to advise without a proper title search being done.
Q. What comes first: finding new counsel or Answering the Complaint?
A: If the judge gave you 30 days to find new counsel, likely the order says everything is "stayed" for that period, meaning nothing will happen until the 30 days expires. You will want to review the wording in the order carefully to be sure.
Q. How do I get a deed and property in my name?
A: You will need to review the deed and probate documents with an attorney. There are too many variables to be able to advise in a web post.
