Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. Can you provide me a bit more information? How is title to the house held currently? Did your brother's partner have a will? What did it provide? Thanks.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
If the trustor here is deceased the will should be probated and everything titled to the deceased passes through probate.I see not way to complete a trust since the trustor is deceased as you state.I think you should consider a second lawyer to make application for probate and move forward.
You are clearly the executor and you should locate a new lawyer and have them proceed to probate.The trust here seems unfunded here, if there are assets titled to the trust they pass through the trust.It appears the house was in the deceased's name and passes as an estate asset.
You can locate a new lawyer here.
The estate lawyer would help you borrow against the house if necessary until a sale can be made . I see no way around probate here for the estate assets.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
If you can positive rate 5 stars whenw eare done it is always much appreciated.Thanks again.
