We recently bought a relative's home in New Smyrna Beach, FL that was in Probate for over three years. The law firm has not handled matters very well and because of poor communication has caused us to miss the time period to purchase homeowners insurance
within 30 days of closing. Also, the law firm did not keep the house insured while it was in Probate and I am not sure if that is proper or legal.
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: What do you mean filed or reported? I have contacted several insurance
providers such as Allstate and State Farm to get homeowners insurance. They have quoted very high premiums
due to missing the 30 day window within closing. And to top it all off, I still do not have paperwork or a deed for a house that closed on July 15, 2016.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes. The law firm has recently sent the estate documents to all 14 of the beneficiaries
of which I am one. ONe of the beneficiaries is scheduled to receive a greater percentage than the rest even though his relationship is the same to the deceased as other beneficiaries. I cannot get an answer as to why that is.
