Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

I am very sorry to hear about your situation and my condolences on the loss of your husband. This is honestly a complicated issue but one that a local attorney will be able to assist you with. To transfer the properties into your name you will need to open a probate in the County in the State in which your husband resided. From there the attorney will file what is called an ancillary probate in each State in which a property is located. This allows each State to issue Letters of Testamentary to you granting you the authority to re-title the properties into your name. There really is no simple process and it will require probate.

The local attorney will be able to find all the properties and obtain the addresses and deed copies as well.

If you tell me what State you live in, I can provide you with information for retaining a lawyer near you to assist you.

All my best and encouragement. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your questions. I realize this was not the answer you were hoping to receive however I have done my best to provide information which truthfully addresses your question. Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
