18 Questions Answered

Q. Can a man disinherit his half brother from his fathers estate if the father and brother never met or made contact with
A: The half-brother cannot disinheit anyone outside of his own heirs. The father would be the one to disinherit someone in his will.
Q. If the home is in my husbands name with his ex wife will she get the house if he dies? In the will he gives it to me.
A: That depends on his divorce decree. At the very least, you would get the 50% interest. But a probate lawyer would need to review the divorce decree to know with 100% certainty who gets what.
Q. Can an attorney in fact gift himself or herself property from whom she is an attorney in fact for. With a power of att.
A: Possibly, but that would depend on whether the power of attorney gives the power of gifting any part of the estate.
Q. My mother's will states that when she passes away, house will be sold & proceeds will go to us siblings.
A: The will should state what happens to your sibling's share. You should have it reviewed by a lawyer to verify.
Q. I hear it's not good to appoint two executors to your will. Why?
A: It's not ideal to have two independent executors of your estate because they can each act independently of each other - devising assets away without notifying the other executor.
Q. If you sell real estate on a rent to purchase basis and the purchases become unable to pay. What is your recourse
A: Depending on how the agreement is structured (which can be very tricky), the purchaser become tenant, not a purchaser. It's best to have this one reviewed by a real estate lawyer for a full answer on all your options.
Q. Can the owners of my complex still take legal action if the balance is paid in full the same week they file?
A: They shouldn't have filed after the balance was paid, unless there are other unresolved issues/defaults of the lease.
Q. How do my siblings and I handle my father's estate now that has died without a will? Mother did 6 months ago.
A: You can probate his estate or use Affidavits of Heirship to sell the vehicle and the house. Which one depends on a few more facts. You'll need to at least consult with a lawyer that handles probate prior to making the decision about which one.
Q. My friend's Dad died without a will.
A: If there was no Will, then the default Texas rules would not allow the stepson to be an heir, unless the deceased adopted the stepson before the stepson was 18 years old.
