211 Questions Answered
Q. I need to assist my elderly Aunt in finding a lawyer that can write up a new will for her.
A: If you think that her income is such that she may qualify for pro bono legal services, you can contact Three Rivers Legal Services to see if she does in fact qualify, and if so, they will find a pro bono attorney who would be willing to prepare a will for her. If not, she can call our office in Gainesville for a quote.
Q. I am on the Warranty deed a and a quit claim deed in a revocable trust and the husband passes away do I have sole owner
A: You should definitely consult with an estate planning attorney to review the trust agreement and determine what your rights are and explain it to you.

In your situation, your last opportunity for reimbursement of estate related and real estate related expenses is at the time of the real estate closing. You are going to want to provide proof of payment of these expenses to the closing attorney/title agent and ask that you be reimbursed as a seller's cost. The other seller will have to approve of the closing statement with your costs listed on there, but if they don't, then your remedy is to hold up the closing--so hopefully you will be able to negotiate the payment of these expenses as a seller's cost and be paid off the top before the net amount to seller is divided 50/50. ...
