Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Thank you so much for your assistance in this delicate matter. I believe I have only one final question concerning the will-disclaimer-property rights.The Will indicates the three siblings only as heirs to the property. No mention of default distribution according to the personal representative. (BTW - What is default distribution?)(An attorney stated that the property would go to the heirs of the disclaimant.) Based on the information provided, this is a false statement and the property will be divided by the two remaining heirs to the estate, correct. All based on filing of a timely disclaimer. Again, thank you. I will be kind in my gratuity. Peg
