My grandfather passed away and actually has 2 houses. House (1), he lived in and has been paid off for several years. The property taxes on House (1) have also been frozen for over 20 years now as he was in his late 80's and locked in the property tax when he retired. For House (1), is there a way to keep those prop taxes the same in TX, like an "Exclusion of Transfer"? House (2) was purchased in the mid-1990's and still has a mortgage balance. After inheriting House (2), what are my options regarding setting up the mortgage so that I can make payments or sell the house while at the same time limiting or eliminating my liability in case the payments can not be made (in other words protecting my credit)?The Will is in probate now, and has been since October. The estate has been making payments for House (2), and the Will actually calls to pay off House (2), but allows for the executor to change that if she sees fit. The executor inherits House (1), I inherit House (2), but both are set up under my grandfather's estate currently. My grandfather's estate is set to be close in Feb., but not sure if my Aunt (the executor) wants to close it so soon (though it's been about 6 months now). I think she is does not want the property taxes to go up on House (1). However, not closing the estate effects the rest of us in a negative way, so just trying to help her. Also, if no payments are made on House (2), and the estate is still in probate, can a foreclosure effect any other assets (ie-House 1) in my grandfather's estate as it stands now....open in probate?
