Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Has the will been admitted for probate?
Did you receive a written warranty with the roof?
Thank you for the additional information.
The first step is to file a petition to open probate and admit the holographic will for acceptance for probate.
You or whomever the will nominates will be appointed as executor and then, eventually, you will have title.
Make a warranty claim. Regardless of the status of payment, the warranty is still enforceable. Make sure to follow the provision in the warranty for a claim since the failure to give notice or missing a deadline could prejudice your rights.
An attorney is not required, but is strongly recommended.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspxIt is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are all peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
Are you still online with me?
