Legal Answers
Q. Relatives did a memorandum of trust on a property after death the property was not in the trust or accounted for
A: If the memorandum of trust was done after the death and the property was never transferred to the trust, the memorandum would not be effective. If the property was not transferred into the trust before death, an estate proceeding will have to be instituted to transfer good title to the property. If there was a will, the property will be distributed to the persons named in the will. If there was no will, the property will be distributed to the heirs at law. Depending on the status of the estate, there are a few expedited procedures that can get the property transferred to the proper persons relatively quickly and cheaply. If there is agreement between the parties the property is distributed to, they can transfer it to the trust. You should consult with an attorney to sort out the specific facts and determine the best course of action.
Q. house has been unattended for 15 years. The yard is over grown and house is falling apart. Could I claim it as my own
A: Not enough information to answer . What is your relationship to the house? Who are the owners? Who is in possession of the house? Contact an attorney to discuss the details and determine a course of action.
Q. Should my sister and I inherit my late father's portion of our grandparent's estate?
A: You should contact an estate attorney to review the probate proceedings and the Trust documents. The resolution of this issue depends on the specific terms of the Trust and what actually happened in the probate case. Do not delay in contacting an attorney for specific advice. Many attorneys will provide free initial consultation.
