Legal Answers
304 Questions Answered

Q. Does my spouse have to sign a warranty deed in OK for land that was inherited?
A: Great question: The reason that a spouse is generally required to sign deeds that include surface interest is to protect the transferee (the person receiving the property and their lenders) from a possible spousal homestead claim. A spouse occupying property cannot be deprived of the right of occupancy even if she/he does not own an interest in the property. Even if you wife does not live on the property most title examiners require the signature to avoid such a claim. I would not advise a client to accept a deed from a married person unless their spouse also signed. On a second issue, it probably would have been better to inherit the land instead of receiving the property as a gift. The reason is that if the property has increased in value since your parents' acquisition the you would be entitled to a stepped-up basis. This means that when sold the capital gains would be calculated on the value at the last of their death. But since they gifted it to you, the capital gains will be computed as the difference of their acquisition (purchase price or value when they inherited) and the sales price.
Q. I have a question about getting a copy of my parents will when my brother will not let me see it.
A: This might help: Title 58. Probate Procedure Chapter 2 - Probate of Wills General Provisions Section 24 - Production of Will May be Compelled by the Court Cite as: O.S. §, __ __ If it be alleged in the petition that the will is in the possession of a third person and the court is satisfied that the allegation is correct, an order must be issued and served upon the person having possession of the will, requiring him to produce it in the court at the time named in the order. If he has possession of the will and neglects or refuses to produce it in obedience to the order, he may by warrant of the court be committed to the jail of the county, and kept in close confinement until he produces it.
Q. Are hearing tests considered medical records in Oklahoma? If yes, how do I get a copy of my hearing test?
A: You should always be entitled to your personal medical records.
