Q: I would like to tranfer my properties to my son and daughter. How much does it cost me to tranfer a deed in Md.
A: No fee is set by law and each firm sets its own fees (For instance, my firm charges $200 for most stand alone deeds, you are welcome to call other firms and get their fee schedules). Besides a lawyer's fee for drawing up a deed, there are governmental recording charges, currently around $60 and some counties require a lien release at a fee of $50 or so. Before you transfer property to a child outright, I encourage you to map out the reasons for doing this. Sometimes there are better ways to transfer property rather than simply giving it outright and an outright transfer may involve gift tax returns. While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to get personal advice.
Q: My husband died intestate. Do his 2 children have to agree for me to be the personal rep. of the estate?
A: Not necessarily. A surviving spouse has authority to seek appointment as personal representative. However, the spouse and children are in the same class / priority line so a child can also seek appointment or challenge the spouse. While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to get advice related to your particular needs.
Q: My father recognized me.... and he is now dead ...am I do any $
A: The answer depends on whether there was a will or not and whether any assets were in his estate. A parent is generally free to leave money to whichever of their children they choose (or not). However, if a parent dies intestate (that is, without a will), the law specifies that a certain portion goes to their children. While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to review the details of this particular estate.
Q: What happens if all claims are paid in an estate and the estate has no more $$ and a bill is received?
A: The law gives a specific priority for paying bills when there is not enough money in an estate to go around. Not all bills fall in the same category. If the estate doesn't have sufficient money, it should wait for the time frame when creditors can come forward to pass before paying. While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to get personal advice.
Q: My sister passed left 3 children no will 1 child saying others wont get anything wont give them pprobate solicitors name
A: When an estate is opened, it becomes a matter of public record. Also, notice must be mailed to every interested person which includes any children of the deceased. If no one received notice of the estate details, it may be that an estate has not yet been opened - the law lists people with priority to manage an estate (serve as Personal Representative) if there is no will. Generally any child has equal priority to seek appointment. To find out if an estate has been opened, contact the Register of Wills for the county where the deceased person last lived. While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation and shouldn't take the place of meeting with an attorney.
Q: What to do if Manager force commission employee to tip in profit lost every month?
A: The question is not clear. An employer cannot ordinarily force employees to pay the employer. Deductions from pay are only allowed in certain limited circumstances and may be illegal.
Q: Selling real estate as part of a trust - is trustee entitled to a commissiona as well as the realtor?
Q: Can an estate be opened, or a will probated, with an out-of-state death certificate?
A: Yes. (The only reason to open an estate in MD is if the decedent was domiciled here or if there is property in the state of MD).
Q: HOW FILL OUT A SCHDEDULE B SMALL ESTATE FORM
A: Schedule B identifies the assets of the person who died, in other words what they owned at the time of their death. It also lists all creditors the deceased person owed money to.
