Legal Answers
147 Questions Answered

Q. Do I have to have the home put in my name to sell it?
A: I'm assuming your mother passed away and left the home to you. You will not be able to transfer good title to the property unless it is in your name.
Q. When assigning an executor to our will, do they need to be living in the state of Oklahoma or can they live out of state
A: There is no requirement that the person live in in Oklahoma. However, there are some logistical benefits to having an in-state executor. Also, you may consider creating a trust or using other probate avoidance techniques. Naming an executor does not automatically give that person authority to deal with your property because a court must approve his or her appointment. In other words Will = probate.
Q. My mother passed away. In her will she left everything to me. She never had ex removed from deed.
A: Sorry for your loss. 1. If the divorce decree does award your mother the property without any conditions and it contains a legal description, you should be able to obtain a certified copy of it from the court clerk and file it with the county clerk (recorder of deeds). This may have already been done. 2. You will need to probate her will to have the home put in your name. Lots of other details you should discuss with an attorney.
Q. Can an heir file suit for tortious interference for stepmom hiding late Dad's will in safe deposit box?
A: I don't practice in Texas but I found this site informative: http://www.texasinheritance.com/probate/how-to-probate-a-case/298-learn-how-to-obtain-a-copy-of-a-will Like many states it appears that it is crime in Texas to conceal or destroy a Will.
Q. How much should a leese pay leesor for a shut in well per month per acre?
A: If you have a lease that should already be spelled therein. If someone is asking you to sign a lease that amount is negotiable. The producer should also be required to pay the shut-in without requiring the mineral owner to request it. Producers look for a $1 per acre upon request. Mineral owners should request a greater amount. Perhaps $25. Nobody gets rich on shut-in royalties.
Q. Quiet Title? Can we lose our cash investment for land purchase, should someone come forward as previous owner?
A: Require your owner to provide title insurance before you turn over money. A quiet title could be much more expensive. Use an attorney or closing company. Sounds like a risky investment.
Q. My mother in law owns property and had the title put in hers and her son's name. But left it to her daughter in the will
A: Great question. Ultimately it depends upon how the deed was drawn up. An attorney would probably charge an hour of time to review and provide an opinion. Without seeing the deed it is impossible to tell. But it is likely that you husband is entitled to at least 50% of the property.
Q. Planintiff isn’t paying court ordered lawyer fees and my lawyer is threatening to take me to small claims court.
A: I agree with Keegan. If you know where your opponent works or banks your attorney should be able to issue a garnishment. The attorney would automatically be entitled to additional attorney's fees. If you don't know this information the court can order a hearing on assets.
Q. my brother died and had no will all property and money went to his daughter which proved to be incompetent do to illnes
A: The personal representative is appointed by the court. If you brother was unmarried and had an adult child, then that child would have priority over you to serve in that role. However, a court is not required to follow the priority as listed.
