A: Keep in mind that in the State of Virginia the statute of limitations on the enforcement of the underlying Deed of Trust is 10 years from the maturity date (VA Code Section 8.01-241).

Q. How can we sell my mother's house when one of the coowners on the deed died before signing off on the deed?
A: With the issue of the one child's estate being hung up in probate in the Virgin Islands and not knowing the terms of the child's last will and testament, you only course of action may be to contact a local attorney where the property is located and file a suit for partition. The court can approve the sale of the deceased child's share of the property can be paid into court until the resolution of the Virgin Islands probate courts.
