You may have to go to probate to get the RAD back.
For everything else you are fine you send a certified copy of the Will and death certificate and you will become the sole owner.
They usually ask for probate if there is an asset solely in the name of the deceased and it is over $100,000.00
This is to protect themselves.
You can send them a copy of his will and the death certificate and ask they release without probate and you are prepared to sign and indemnity if there is any claim. If they accept his once you sign then they will release.
I have just had to file for probate in a similar matter. The home was not prepared to accept the indemnity.
But you can only try.
