Legal Answers
262 Questions Answered

Q. Can my worthless mineral rights just be ignored when I die?
A: It appears that Texas law allows a transfer on death transaction for minerals. A Texas attorney should be asked about a transfer on death deed. Current federal estate taxes begin at $11.4 million. However, don't just focus on who gets your things when you are gone. Estate planning also avoids guardianship with proper planning.
Q. I live in my family's house. I have lived in this house for 16 years, paid the taxes, and maintained repairs.
A: If there are more claimants than you to your cousin's estate it is possible that you have a claim by adverse possession but this would probably require a quiet title action. In either event you will need an attorney
Q. In Oklahoma, if you have a revocable trust, do you have to file the will in District Court?
A: Probably not unless the didn’t transfer property into the trust.
Q. Can a life estate be terminated if the owner of the life estate has abandoned the property?
A: No unless the deed requires occupancy
Q. grandmother died in 1902, prior to receiving patent deed, with no will. received heirs deed, can i file probate?
A: Generally, yes, a probate can be filed irregardless of how long somebody has been deceased. The question is whether such a probate would fix the title issue you have.
Q. I wasnt notified of my mothers estate being sold in probate..anything I can do?
A: If this involved real property in which the "probate estate" had an interest, then you should have either consented or been notified. Locate an attorney in the county where the probate occurred to check out your options.
Q. co heir sold parcels via quit claim deed without our knowledge
A: I assume that this is property located in Oklahoma. If you were on title to the property, then the buyers did not receive full title. You possibly still have an interest and remedies. If this were sold during probate, those records would need to be reviewed to determine if she acted with the authority.
Q. I listed a house to sell and married prior to closing. Does my wife need to sign any documents ?
A: At closing it is likely that she will be required to sign off on the deed even if she is not on the title. This is because should could oppose the sale because of a spousal homestead claim. Let the realtor know, the title company should be able to handle this easily.
Q. Is it legal for my mother to write her own will as long as it is witnessed and notarized?
A: Absolutely, but it is extremely easy to create an invalid Will. A 401k will be disbursed according to the beneficiary designation even if the wheels leave it to somebody else. She should also consider probate avoidance techniques such as trusts, Transfer on death designation’s etc. Finally she needs to consider having proper powers of attorney and advanced healthcare directive’s in place.
