Hello Attorney Kennett,
Your answer is as I assumed. Nothing has been done yet, but my cousin is one of those people whose trustworthiness is questionable. We both agreed that the house would be put on the market to be sold since we both live in Florida. Once sold the proceeds are to be split down the middle. My concerns come from the fact that he has change his contact information with out informing me.
Thank you very much for your information.
The probate process was recently completed and the title is clear with both names on the deed. I just wanted to validate my assumptions/thoughts with information from someone with knowledge of the estate law. Your answers have more than satisfied my concerns. However, if I have any questions in the future, it would be great if I could contact you again.
