Legal Answers
Q. My daughter was left something in her grandfather's will. The will specified that recipients must be 25 years of age.
A: A will that creates a trust post death is said to create a testamentary trust. A testamentary trust is irrevocable and cannot be changed. The terms of that trust will dictate how distributions can be made. Often the trust will allow the trustee to make distributions based on an annual percentage, or annual net income of the trust, or for health, support, maintenance and education.
Q. What can be done if executor refuses to probate will in Texas?
A: Sadly, some heir become attached to a home or feel that their entitled to live there. You need to get the law involved to change that situation. Hire a probate attorney to help get someone appointed to represent the estate and then the problem can be resolved. It's always tough dealing with people who are stubborn and feel entitled. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Q. Can I become executor of estate sell it and then give them their share later? Or what should I do next to take of this?
A: Without a Will, you'll need to do an administration of the estate. The court will appoint an administrator, and then the administrator will have the power to sell the property and distribute the assets. Many people in Texas think that because they're the rightful heir or next of kin, that they can just sign a piece of paper. However, reality is that the courts need to get involved before actions can be taken on an estate.
