Q. I have a 98 year old father. He has a will. Is there a way to avoid probate on is condo or does his will do that?
A: A will does not avoid probate. You can consult an attorney to prepare a Transfer on Death Affidavit to record with the Recorder's office. That will transfer outside of probate. Alternately, you can create a trust and transfer the condo to the trustee.
Q. I recently moved my 95 yr old grandpa from Florida to a Ohio nursing home. I also paid for his car to be transported to
A: It is good that you are recognizing this could be a problem up front, so that it can be handled. There are two ways to approach it. One is to accept there is a penalty for an improper transfer, and arrange to pay (value of car/average monthly private pay rate for this year, currently $7,453 = number of months). The other approach would be to make the argument that it was gifted for a reason other than to qualify for Medicaid, ex. in exchange for its transport. An elder law attorney can assist you with this.
Q. Does the wife need to file a will and/or ask for summary release from administration in Ohio for a very small estate?
A: ProSeniors is correct. From your description, the only asset you would have to probate is the $40 bank account and it would cost more to probate it than it is worth.
