Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good afternoon Sheila,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry for your loss. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Unfortunately, there is no short cut around the legal requirement in this circumstance. Because you are dealing with real property, your brother's estate must be probated by filing a probate action in the court where he lived at the time of his passing. Only the court can order the title to the property transferred to the next of kin---which would be to his Mother. Only after title is granted by the court to his mother can she then legally transfer the property to his brother and sisters in accordance with his wishes.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,Doug
Good afternoon Sheila,
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.Please know that I answered your question in good faith, and with the expectation that you would act similarly and rate my service to you. If I have already provided you with the information you asked for and you have no additional questions, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
