A family member passed away, leaving no will and a disabled sister who lived with him. The house is in trouble. I would like to assume the mortgage but we need to petition the courts to appoint an executor. Do we need an attorney to do this?

I am working with a team of investors and real estate professionals. We need an attorney who has an escrow account; that we can have the investors send money to and direct to purchase property. Preferably we would like one with cpa experience. It'...
Typically escrow companies handle this type of account in California. It is also possible for you to open up a trust account to receive the money. My suspicion is most attorneys are not in the position to do what you ask because our trust accounts are strictly monitored by the state bar and we do not even get the interest on those accounts.See question
I was living with, and care-giving for my mother for past 2 years. I'm self employed and went broke. Left there not on good terms. Took a few things and said I'd make arrangements to come back for the rest. When I returned to retrieve remainder ...
You could probably bring a suit in small claims court unless the jewelry is worth more than $10,000.00. It may be difficult to prove your case unless you have photos and prove you left your property in the home. If you have proof it was left there you will still need to prove that the jewelry was taken by your sister. If you prove the jewelry was there and you had a right to leave it you may be able to bring a suit for negligence. If the jewelry has purely sentimental value and not cash value you may want to consider that the only thing a court can award you is cash.See question

It would be the person who is asking that the Bond be waived, usually the attorney or the Trustee.See question

It should say, "Dear Trustee," unless you can demonstrate that all accountings were waived by the Settlors or Grantors, Probate Code Section 16062 requires you to provide an accounting and you are duty bound to do so. Please send the accounting to all beneficiaries.See question
I am trying to figure out if I simply apply for a business account and label it trust or escrow, or do I need a trust agreement naming my customers' whose funds I'm holding as beneficiaries and specifically open up a trust account.
What you need is a Trust Account. However, you should talk with a properly licensed real estate - business attorney because he or she can help you make certain that you do not violate any local laws. Time to get this done is before the business is up and running. Also, you will get better advice if you talk with a business attorney.See question
I want to know if I need to get a new trust as I am now a resident of Nevada.
If you want the trust to have the trust administered under the laws of Nevada you can have an attorney amend the trust to say so. The attorney may for other reasons advise you to get a new trust.See question
My mom has a trust. She has passed away. 3 of her 4 children are trustees in the trust. All 4 children are included as beneficiaries. Now that she has passed, is it possible to add the left out child as a trustee? Is there a benefit of doing ...
It all depends on what the Trust says. I see no benefit in having a four-way tie between beneficiaries, as that would only get you all into court. You should have a copy of the trust and I would recommend that you read the section on successor trustees. More than likely you will need an attorney.See question

On the death of the second spouse the trust became irrevocable and now you would need a judge to allow you to change the trust. If everybody who is an heir or beneficiary of the trust agree the judge will probably allow the change. If it is an emergency you may be able to go in "ex parte" which means without the usual notice and outside of the usual time frame to get your change done. YOU WILL need a lawyer. Best of luck.See question
