2 Questions Answered
Q. Mom died in Alabama with mortgage and no funds. Who pays and can PR be reimbursed?
A: This is not legal advice as to this specific question or case you have submitted but information I believe is relevant to your question. In situations like this an Intestate Probate of the Estate of the Decedent is needed for a personal representative to have authority to act on behalf of the estate and heirs at law as defined by statute in the Code of Alabama. Typically, once the intestate estate is open, permission of the court is needed to liquidate the estate property. That said you should hire a lawyer to navigate all the possibilities before you. In general, these types of cases can involve many documents a lawyer will want to view. He will need all documentation involved, including filed estate documents, death certificate, real estate deed and mortgage and the mortgage statement as well as any other debt information. Depending on the value of such an estate, you would need to decide whether the cost to investigate the status by an attorney is economically feasible based on the possible inheritance or settlement. You would want a lawyer to determine if there is any potential current or future liability to you as a result of any particular transaction or document the mortgage company or bank requires you to execute. I suggest you weigh up all costs and reimbursable expenses to have a lawyer help make the decision. ... Read More

A: This is not legal advice as to this specific case you have submitted but information I believe is relevant to your question. That said, you should hire a lawyer to navigate all the possibilities before you. In general, these types of cases can involve many documents. A lawyer will need all documentation involved, including filed estate documents, a will and any contested filings as well as a full copy of the trust, a copy of the decedent’s death certificate and all information concerning the heirs and their relationship to the decedent (and to you) to determine the status of this situation. Depending on the value of such an estate, you would need to decide whether the cost to investigate the status by an attorney is economically feasible based on the possible inheritance or settlement. Also, you would want a lawyer to determine if there is any potential current or future liability to you as a result of executing and agreeing to the settlement. I suggest you weigh up all costs to have a lawyer help make the decision. ... Read More
