Legal Answers
20 Questions Answered

Q. My mom died several months ago in Ohio,I know I am in the will, but I have not received anything from the executors.
A: No news is bad news. You need to communicate with the executor to see where the process is. The executor may be strategically waiting to open the estate. Or, there may be nothing going through probate, so it wouldn't matter what the will says. If the executor is being evasive (like refusing to give you a copy of the will), then contact an attorney immediately.
Q. What probate form In Medina County OH do I need to release a hold on my deceased mothers bank account holding $5,200.
A: You can do a release, rather than a summary release, to get the entire $5,200 as long as you're the sole heir or you paid the funeral bill and it was over $5,200. Some counties make you wait 6 months from the date of death to file a release. Medina County has a release "packet" on their website. You can simply fill out all those forms and file according to the instructions. You can probably get an attorney to help you do it for under $1,000 as well.
Q. Can I back out of estate contract?
A: If the seller can't close before Nov. 30th, then that is a breach of contract and you can terminate. They will likely ask you to sign an extension, but you aren't obligated to do so. If the seller is able to close by then, you can still terminate the contract if you want. This is considered a breach by you and you are liable to the Seller for any damages. Usually, if the seller finds another buyer at the same price, then the damages are minimal. In fact, sellers rarely pursue a buyer who backed out because damages are so minimal.
