Thank you for your quick response. Are creditors often willing to voluntarily release given these fairly clear circumstances? The judgment amount is only for a little over $4k, so I would think receipt of a voluntary release would not necessarily be out of the question (versus being hailed into court for a quiet title action). I would have my mom send proof of title (deed showing joint tenancy) and a death certificate to the creditor's attorneys of record and request that the judgment be voluntarily released. Is there an official release document required or can we craft one to send with a letter requesting voluntary release of judgment?
