Q: My brother is executer of dad's will. Probate was never gone by the will. In the will my father stated he wants theHouse to really go to my brother, me and my dead brother's kid. Can my brother sale house without probate? If will has to go thru probate is my signature needed and signature of dead brother's child? I believe he's trying to cut on my neice from the will. She is an adult and can fight if she knows what's occurring. I do not desire to be involved in just about any conflict.
Attorney Reply Terry Lynn Garrett
A: The Will needs to be probated while in theory title to the house might be transferred by means of an Affidavit of Heirship recorded with the clerk of the county where the property is situated. Texas Estates Code 252.201 demands that a man who owns a Will turn it around to the court clerk when informed of the passing. Secreting or destroying a Will is a criminal offense. If a person hiring an attorney to request them to do this will inevitably place you in battle together, asking them or is refusing to get this done, about what's right, just as your concern is doing. But this does not automatically mean that you need to be drawn into litigation.

Q: A barbed wire fence was rebuilt by us and transferred it a few feet since the neighbor didn't need to lose the trees.Many years ago we needed to rebuild a barbed wire fence on a 129.5 acre property in Texas. We agreed to split the price with the neighbor. We were willing to knock the post oak trees that had grown up in the fence line down, but the neighbor needed to save the trees and volunteered to move the fence a few feet onto his property. Now we're attempting to sell the property. Probably it will have to be surveyed. Do get the legal description of the property restated and we must compensate the neighbor for the value of his property? Should this be revealed to potential buyers? The property is located in Coleman County, TX,.
Lawyer Solution Ben F Meek III
A: You may sell the property with the fence over onto the neighbor's property and reveal that fact prominently in your sale doctors. But that raises the issue of having his fence on his new neighbor's property and issue for the buyer about letting it remain there. (Still, if the purchaser is willing to take the house under that state, you may sell it that way). If the cost is right you're on target with your notion of buying that strip from your neighbor. Then possess the surveyor update the metes and bounds in your legal description and create the brand new boundary. If you can not get the strip at a cost that is fair, you may have to move your fence back onto your property. Use an experienced real-estate lawyer (and a good surveyor). All the best to you.

Either of you're able to file a Motion to Partition. This may either compel a sale of the home or compel the other to buy out the interest of the individual filing with all the proceeds of the deal payable to you personally both. You should see an area probate attorney.

I'm filing an eviction suit because she asserts she's rights and will not leave. To my understanding, she has "tenant" rights, because she lives here I need to give her a specific time to vacate the premises and if she still refuses afterward I should follow up with the eviction suit. I am doing that at the moment, but she needs to settle this on our own without needing to visit court but desires to remain with the property because she says shes en entitled to half...
