Legal Answers
Q. Probate Question re: filing Disposition of Personal Prop without Admins. in Florida
A: I am so very sorry for your loss. If you properly file the court papers for Disposition of Personal Property Without Administration and provide the appropriate supporting documentation and get the waiver/consent of all the heirs, then the court will prepare the order and the judge will sign it. Then you would get a certified copy of the order and take it to the bank for disbursement of the small accounts. If you have any difficulty with this process, however, you should definitely consult with a probate attorney.
Q. My brother died. He was never married and had no children. Both parents are dead. He had 5 surviving siblings.
A: You will need to hire a probate attorney to open your brother's estate and get a court order distributing the property to the heirs before you can sell the property. The attorney will explain to you who are the heirs at law. Yes, your predeceased sister's children take her share under intestate succession. The court order that you receive from the probate judge will list all the heirs and their percentage interest, and this order gets recorded in the public records like a deed. Then all of the heirs would need to join together in a sale of the property.
Q. Redevelopment of a golf course to include 200 townhomes 15 feet from the rear of my condo has been proposed.
A: This is not an elder law question. This is a real estate question. I would re-post it under real estate law or call and get the advice of a real estate lawyer.
