Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Don't sign anything that you don't understand.I assume it is related to the house here make sure they aren't tricking you.If you can post what you get here I could offer more information.You may want to positive rate here you can then come back and post the document or paste it.This doesn' sound normal you are smart to want to read it first and ask questions.Don't sign anything you don't understand.
Thanks again, let me know if you have more followup.
It could be if there was no will and he is going to be the administrator for the estate court requires a bond for your protection unless you all waive it.The bond fee comes out of the estate fee so you inherit less but you weigh that against your trust of him here.That makes sense that he would be trying to save money and have you sign such a bond waiver for probate.
Thanks for the follow up and chance to respond.
