Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Are we able to quick deed the property to her since the will is not probated.
Yes, you can execute a "quit claim" deed over to her, but that only conveys what husband owns...and at this point that is nothing because the estate owns the property since she hasn't probated the will and settled the estate. A quitclaim deed basically says "Whatever I own, be it 0% or 100%, I am transferring, but I make no guarantees or warranties about the title".
So if husband wants to sign a quitclaim deed, there is no harm in doing so. It might give sister in law a way to then negotiate with the bank to see if she could settle the mortgage for less than is actually owed.
