Customer Question

My dad passed away in 1989. In his will, he left our home place, in a life estate, to my stepmother, to pass to me at her death. She died last week. She used the property as rental property. What do I need to do to take possession of said property?

I am sorry to hear about your loss. Can you please tell me if probate was filed for his estate? How about her estate? Or, not?
