Excellent Attorney!
In 2017, I spoke to numerous attorney’s in the Clarksville TN area to handle issues surrounding my previous divorce and child support issues. After speaking to numerous attorney’s I chose John Crow to represent me. From the start, Mr. Crow took my case serious, was reasonable with the pricing, and was very responsive to my concerns. MR. Crow was vigilant, never gave up, and argued my case very well in front of the presiding judge. Although the case did not work out completely in my favor, I was satisfied with the eventual outcome in 2020. Compared to other attorney’s in the area Mr. Crow is among the best and offers quality service for a very reasonable price. Most importantly, I believe that Mr. Crow is a very genuine person.

2 Questions Answered

Q. We live in TN. Our landlord just passed away, she has a will and an executor, who do we pay rent to?
A: I would speak with the attorney for the executor and let him know that you need to pay rent. In Tennessee real estate is not necessarily under the control of the executor. It depends on whether the real estate was made subject to the executor's administration of the estate. If it was not, then the rent may have to be paid directly to the beneficiaries of the real estate in the will. Obviously, I presume you do not know who those persons are. As such, I would just call the attorney for the executor and speak with him/her about the situation and they should be able to provide you more direction.
Q. I have lost my original will. I have a copy. Should I have it notarized or rewitnessed. It was written over 20 years
A: I would advise speaking to an estate planning attorney in the area in which you reside. It does sound like a very straightforward plan and would not be very expensive to set up. You could probably plan your estate to have beneficiaries on all your financial accounts such that the only major probate asset would be your home. If your home ifs the only probate asset at your death, the probate costs will be very minimal. Whatever you decide to do, please make sure that your will is properly prepared and executed. Clients come to me all the time with wills that were not correctly signed and it can be a headache trying to probate them. Best of luck.
