Legal Answers
Q. Can the sole executor of a will add a family member to the estate to refinance a property in the estate?
A: This leaves a number of questions unanswered. You should seek counsel.
Q. If someone inherits a home and all heirs agree do we have to wait til probate to evict tenants so we can move in?
A: It's easy to transfer the property out of the decedent's name and into the names of the heirs. Then, you won't have any issues with the probate court when you file eviction. Generally, unless a will says otherwise, an administrator (executor) needs special permission from the court to file an eviction action. Avoid this as much as you can. Get an attorney to help you with this because you have some issues that can present serious complications.
Q. A final accounting of assets, etc. has been filed. I had to sign an agreement to this. Will I receive a check?
A: Beneficiaries do not "have" to sign anything in Ohio. But, if the accounting says that you are getting a distribution, then you should expect one. You may want to talk to an attorney if the final account was filed a while ago; maybe even the estate's attorney. Typically, the checks are written on the same day the final account is signed.
