Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you.
You will need to make application for probate.You are appointed executor.As executor you pay claims, taxes, and then the property is deeded by you as executor to yourself individually to complete probate.This is called a fiduciary deed and again it is completed as part of probate administration here.
You will need a local probate lawyer to make application, appear with you in front of the judge, and prepare the fiduciary deed.Once the deed is recorded here then you have clear title.The problem here it sounds like probate was not filed and the deed not recorded as part of that.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.;Thanks again.
