When dad died, I was a teenager. My mom and older sister did not do anything. He had nothing in his estate, except a house he rented out. The house was in his name alone. Mom continued to collect rent on the property but never had the property transferred into her name. Mom just died and we do not know what to do.
The property is barely worth $90,000 because of where it is located and because mom never put any money into maintaining or up-keeping it. The probate court is telling us that we need to settle dad's affairs and transfer the property to mom before settling her affairs. I am getting the money together to get an attorney retained, but I am getting conflicting information on what needs to happen next and what forms they would be filing for us.
