I have been trying to find out how to become the owner of the home I live in in order to deal with the bank and qualify assistance. Attorney 2020 at your site writes that I can deal with the bank as I am the owner because the deed is now solelyin my name. My mother also wrote a letter appointing me as the executor home. A couple of attorneys have said that I've created tax problems by recording the deed in my name and instructed me to communicate with a probate / tax attorney.Additionally, there is a lien on my father's name and a knowledgeable person said that the lien holder has one year following the person's death to obtain payment.
