My Mother died last Sept 21 2010, I had full Power of Attorney

This answer was rated:

My Mother died last Sept 21 2010, I had full Power of Attorney at the time of her death. I cannot find her will. How do I get the form, or How do I become her Administrator of Estate ? I need a legal Document to send to the Mortgage Lender ASAP.
The power of attorney terminates upon her death. If she died without a will you will need to go to the probate court in the county where your mother lived upon her death. You will need to file a petition to probate her estate and letters of administration to be appointed as the administrator of her estate. You do not indicate in what state and county your mother lived at the time of passing, so I can't direct you to the court for further information. There are many how to probate books you can use at your local law library, they will contain the forms to get started if the county clerk self-help clinic was unable to help you.

Let me know the state and county were mom passed to see if I can get you direct information.

Thank you for your response.

Storey county website does not mention having a probate court is storey county close to Clark county?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No, Storey County is near Reno,NV. & that would be Washoe County.NV.
Thank you for your reply.

Washoe county does not offer the forms. This means you will have to go to the local law library and ask for the probate law books on how to administer the estate. As an example using Clark county you can see the forms needed to initiate the process below:

Notice of hearing appointing the administrator here

Order approving appointment here

Letters of administration here

Thank You very much ! I've downloaded the results, very helpful. I also called the Storey County Clerk & she said I have to get a new Appraisal for the home & submit that to the Storey Co. Court, then pay the filing fee's. Then we can go from there. She said that they use the court system through Carson City, NV. Also, my Mom & I were listed together on the Deed at Storey County. So, this is a good thing in my favor. I've heard that upon her death, the Property goes directly over to my name. Be that as it may, do I still have to put it through Probate ?
If all she has is the house you don't have to be it into probate if the deed says something such as "A and B with rights off survivorship". This means the property will transfer automatically to the other owner. If your deed does not reference survivorship rights then yes you have to proceed with probate.
