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?
None? Was it left to you in a will? Did the owner give it to you? It is also not worth making a legal issue out of it.
