Legal Answers
9 Questions Answered
Q. My dad lives in Arlington Texas. He and my mom are joint owners of my home in Oklahoma. My mother passed away 2019.
A: I’m sorry for the loss of your mother. If the ownership of your home is as joint tenants, not as tenants in common, with rights of survivorship, your dad needs to file an Affidavit of Surviving Joint Tenant to get your mom’s name off of the title. He can then file a quit claim deed to transfer title to you and him as joint tenants, not as tenants in common, with rights of survivorship, or to you.
Q. how do i get a quiet title ran for monies left unclaimed at the oklahoma treasury office in my deceased parents name
A: The first step is to file a claim form with Unclaimed Property. After a caseworker is assigned to your case, they'll instruct you on the documentation needed to release the funds. I would recommend reaching out to an attorney for further help if the caseworker tells you that you need to show proof of ownership, and you're unsure how to show that.
Q. If a parent’s home is to be given to the child in the will but the parent has became ill and requires assisted living
A: There's a lot of different things that can be effected if the house is transferred to the child when the parent enters a nursing home. For example, if the parent is going to need to qualify for Medicaid to pay for their nursing home stay, transferring the home may penalize them on the Medicaid application. It would be best to meet with an elder law attorney to address the specifics of your situation and discuss your options.
