Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Can you please clarify your question, since you stated that the house is already willed to the wife and then ask how does the wife gets her name on the Will?
Thank you for your follow up.
Generally, once the spouse passed away, if the other spouse is not on the mortgage loan, then the surviving spouse will either have to sell the property and pay off the existing mortgage for the deceased spouse or would have to refinance the mortgage in the surviving spouse's name.
I wish you the best of luck!
Generally, an estate has to be filed in the local probate court and the original Will has to be filed with the court and the court will review the case and once estate is properly processed, a new deed would be issue according to the terms of the Will.
