Legal Answers
Q. I need help with Wayne County probate Court my mother passed away my childhood home want to put into my name
A: Provided there or no other heirs or outstanding creditors (related to unpaid debts that your mother had), you can file an Application for Probate. Upon appointment as the Personal Representative of her estate, you may execute a Fiduciary Deed conveying the property to yourself. If there are other heirs or creditors, they may object to you solely owning the home. If you file a Petition for Probate rather than the Application, Wayne County Probate Court will automatically preclude any conveyances or transfers of the property without you specifically obtaining court approval, which will require a second petition. In short, the ease or difficulty of putting the home in your name will depend on if there are other siblings and if there are unpaid creditors.
