My father passed away. Leaving behind his wife and 3 adult children. He left no will. My husband and I took out a loan to pay for his funeral. He has 3 vehicles that can be sold to repay this debt. How do we sell them without sending it through a court when all parties don't agree. We want to sell one vehicle to pay back the loan. The other siblings having no ties to the loan want to keep the vehicles for themselves. How do we get around that? We just want the loan paid. Nothing more.
This estate will need to be probated. I am sorry there is no simple answer
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.
I attached a link that explains probate in MS. It is recommended that you consult with a local attorney.
This matter requires probate in the county of the deceased. Good luck.
Answer is for informational purposes only and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
Affidavits are available from the state, however if the heirs do not agree then an estate will likely have to be probated. Consult with an estate attorney to discuss what options may be available. The first step would be to see if the heirs can get on the same page and what assets and debts are outstanding. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
