Thanks....Also if I am listed on a safety deposit....Can I get a copy of the contents?
I am the POA for my mother in-law and she is the one inheriting from her sister. There are 4 names on the box and hers is one of them. The box was never mentioned in the will.
If the will states she is to receive her tangible personal property, including personal property, house hold items, jewelry at the time of my death and not otherwise disposed of herein. Would this include her vehicle?
I'm just checking...we are talking NY right?......She passed 1/28/13....will was filed 2/14/2013....The executer allowed a grandson on the property and allowed him to take the vehicle and most likely other items I am guessing. This was just a few days after her death. He took the vehicle out of state. She said to me that the deceased said she wanted him to have the vehicle???? I have tried to find out the VIN number for the vehicle to find out where it is.
He is the one to receive the residuary for the estate. How do they determine that it didn't fall under personal property.
I guess I'm still questioning myself ....why the underlined statement below.....does not automatically the vehicle? For a silly example....it also states house hold items....does that mean she could also give him the broom because the broom was not actually specified? Just trying to wrap my head around it all.....
I agree......Thanks for your time!
Are there tonight?
Did you get my question?
Are appliance's considered all tangible and personal property...I see fridge, stove, washer, dryer listed in the description of the home being sold. I am not being greedy but the ex seems to be doing as she pleases. Also someone seen antique furniture out side the home long after her things were put in storage...If she is going to be dishonest, I am going to question everything? We also sent her a request yesterday to let the 89 and 95 old year sisters receive the contents...It is a 7 hr drive for them and cant do it in the winter.
If the will states she is to receive her tangible personal property, including personal property, house hold items, furniture and furnishings, and jewelry at the time of my death and not otherwise disposed of herein.
Yes..just stating the will by word to cover to see if it covers all contents
