I recently discovered that the estate has no equity due to a lien exceeding the value of the estate (other debts). Financially I would not be able to take on the expenses associated with having the property that makes up the estate put in my name even if I try to sell (maintenance fees, insurance, extensive repairs, ect).
My legal representative has informed me that his office would actions would be file against me, and drop me as a client if I did not allow the probate process to be completed, (My legal representative is instant that his office sells the property for me).
I understand only that I will need to appear in court to explain myself. What actions might the court take against me? Will and or how will I be penalized?
