Q. Can't find my fathers original will (have copy). Must be named administrator instead of executor. What's the differnece?
A: As administrators several things are different. 1) you will have to post a bond with the court which isn't cheap. 2) you will not have the ability to sell the real estate until probate is completely closed out barring a request of permission with the court. However, there may be a way around that and I would recommend speaking with an attorney.
Q. My grandmother a resident of Maryland passed away with me in Virginia where do we start probate and register her will
A: You would probate it in maryland, the state of her primary residence aka domicile.
Q. I have a property held as an LLC. The tenant has failed to pay their first months rent now -have give 5 day notice
A: no but i would recommend it.
Q. Grandmother left my dad 2/3 and me 1/3. My dad died intestate in Virginia before the estate was settled. What now?
A: You should contact a probate attorney to help you with this. I'd be happy to help. His estate will most likely receive the 2/3 depending on how far apart he died from your grandmother. Depending on if your dad was married, how many kids he had, and whether it was a first or second marriage will determine if you stand to inherit anything from his estate.
Q. My aunt's husband passed away in another state. His family has taken the truck and house. There is no will.
A: I can't really answer without knowing that states laws but when someone dies without a will they are said to have died intestate. At that point state law dictates in Virginia that everything they have goes to their spouse if it is the same person who they had all their kids with.
Q. Is my landlord required to go back to court to evict me if an Unlawful Detainer was granted last month?
A: He likely just needs a writ of possession because it sounds like you hadn't paid enough rent the first time.
Q. What Virginia code do I reference to place my home in a trust I already have, It use to be Section 58.1- 811 (A) (12)
A: You should never try to draft such an important document by yourself. Please speak with an attorney. One word can mess everything up
Q. Can my leasing manager charge a pet fee and rent after I've signed my lease even though my pet was listed on the app
A: If it is in fact nowhere on the lease and they never told you of it they cannot charge you for it. You may want to have a lawyer write a quick letter on legal letterhead to scare them if they don't back down
Q. If my lawyer is in charge of my fathers estate that I paid can I take my stepmom to court for thing she sold before?
A: It depends on how everything was held. You will need to consult with an attorney before I can answer those questions.
