does he still need a will
Hello, my father is 78 years old and lives in Las Vegas, he owns a mobile home and the property it is on (the deed to this property is also in my name), and he has a savings account and he set it up with the bank that when he dies the bank will open 2 savings accounts 1 in my name and one in my sisters name and the money will be split between these accounts, that is all that he has and he insists that he does not need a will – is eveything protected the way it is now set up, thank you so much for your time, Linda
10 days after death
My father was found dead in his truck on 8/16/04. I was informed 10 days later. He has a mobile home, truck, stocks, last payck, & a life policy. There is no will. Crematory was informed that there was ”No Next of Kin” by his sister and care-taker/co-worker. Co-worker emptied out his trailer during the 10 days and had access to his checking account. Co-worker had his truck driven to her residence after his death. I was also informed that she paid Sept. 2004 space rent on his trailer. Do I have legal right to request his property from this woman? At this time I only have my birth certificate, his military discharge, a copy of his birth cert, and a copy of the police report as legal proof. I have ordered an original death certificate. In the meantime, can I find out financial information from his bank and other institutes using the documents stated above and a copy of the Death Cert?
Questions about Power of Attorney abuse.
I was wondering what the law is in california on the following. If a person leaves a power of attorney for financial. to pay bills. The house was signed over to the power of attoeney so that if something happened to him it would not go into probate. the power of attorney has taken it upon herself to change the deed of the house to her being the soul owner and has taken a large loan out on the house and sold the house. Is this legal? There are still legal residents in this house. The house was never in danger of going into probate before she took out the loan. What can we do about this. It is very urgent. Any information would be greatly appriciated.
I have power of attorney for health care and now I need just power of attorney over finances. Can you help? I am not sure where to direct this request.
Dad signed over his mobile home nextdoor to my sister in 2008, it’s on her land. He passed away in Aug. 09. Mom is in a nursing home (diagnosed with early alzhiemers). My 40 y.o. neice moved into my parents furnished home right after Dad passed away. When my sister and I packed up Mom and Dad’s clothing I told her all I wanted was a sailboat sculpture and I would remove it soon. I expressed to her and my neice on several occasions that I would soon pick up the sculpture since I live out of state. The sulpture has no monetary value, only sentimental value to me. When I arrived to pick up the sculpture my neice would not let me in the house. She and my sister will not return phone calls. I am the executrix and conservator for my Mom and Dad. My sister is their legal guardian. Dad’s Will leaves all to my Mom then to the 3 daughters. What legal right do I have to obtain this sculpture and how?
