Q. Can I get free legal assistance in selling my fathers inherited house.
A: If you desire to handle the probate process by yourself without paying for an attorney to handle the full estate, you may find that a hour or so consultation with an experienced estate practitioner can help provide very helpful framework and tools. The average probate case in Maryland takes 9 months to 1 year to resolve and in some cases can take much longer than that. If the total equity in the house is less than $50,000 and there are no other assets, the estate may qualify as a "Small Estate" which involves considerably less effort than a Regular Estate.

While a skilled consultation will generally have some cost, it may be money well spent

Another attorney posted links to some resources to explore. Please note, however, that generally speaking free legal help is more readily available to low-income individuals facing a dire legal need (such as eviction, debt collection, etc.).

While not legal advice, I hope this general information helps.

Q. Is it legit for a lawyer to ask for a social security number through email?
A: It really isn't clear what you mean by "next of kin paperwork." Do you mean the attorney is designating you in estate planning documents? While it is very common to request addresses and phone numbers of beneficiaries, it would be quite unusual to ask for a beneficiary's photo ID or run "background checks" just to designate you in planning documents. Sometimes financial institutions will ask for a beneficiary's SSN.

As another attorney posted, if getting any questionable requests from someone who says they are a lawyer first verify that they are in fact a licensed attorney (in MD check with the Maryland Court of Appeals to see if the lawyer is licensed in this state and that the phone numbers, etc. match). Some attorneys who practice estate planning will not actively handle other types of cases (litigation) so they may not show up in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search which lists attorneys who have handled litigation cases in Maryland courts (but does not list attorneys handling estates). Every attorney though will show up in the Court's list of licensed attorneys:

If this request in fact comes from an actual licensed attorney it is perfectly reasonable to ask them why they need the information. It is also perfectly reasonable to insist that a full SSN only be relayed through encrypted/password protected documents and not through email.

While not legal advice, I hope this general information helps!

Q. My husband and his dad are on the deed for his dad's house. If his father dies and the will says otherwise, who owns?
A: It all depends on how the deed was written. If the deed gave the co-owners survivorship rights, the surviving owner would own it all regardless of what the Will said (because there would be no interest to pass through the Will as it would have automatically gone to the survivor). However, if the co-owners on the deed owned as tenants in common, then the share of the person who died would go through their Estate as laid out in the Will.

If an attorney is assisting with the estate they should be easily able to ascertain this simply by looking at the deed.

While not legal advice I hope this answer helps!
