If you are unsatisfied with how the administrator is handling the estate, you need to speak to the clerk's office. The clerk's office would probably like to close this estate and will be willing to lean on the administrator some to assist you.
Depends on the ownership interest of each seller, the proceeds are divided between the owners per their respective interest in the property. Look to the deed or will to determine ownership interest if there is none specified then it is equal ownership.
My mother deeded a tract of land to me in 2015, keeping a life estate for herself. She died in 2019. The tract includes a double wide mobile home, valued at $90,000.00. The deed does not mention the mobile home.

I did the 90 day notice to creditors.I didnt mail or hand deliver any notices but i did call local social services and sent the Social Security admin a copy of the death certificate.

As the administrator of an estate, you have a duty to notify any known creditors of the deceased passing and if you fail to do so they can ignore the 90-day notice. The 90-day notice is only for unknown creditors. I would not close the estate until you have notified any known creditors.
I signed paperwork online but tole my realtor to hold the papers til I could come in and review what I signed and possibly remove a signature or revise what I signed. I also held my earnest money (but was willing to pay) and hold my due diligence until paperwork was reviewed (also willing to pay).... Read more »
Since you instructed your realtor not to send the signed papers over, and they did, then you likely have a case against them. I would advise that you speak to a local real estate lawyer, preferably one who also does some civil litigation. They can give you a better idea of your options. I suspect...Read more »

Generally, this depends on how you have treated your bank accounts. Many owners of LLCs use the LLC account as a personal account as well. If you have done this, it is possible to "pierce the corporate veil" and go after personal assets.
There are other ways to accomplish this as...Read more »
In 2015, without my knowledge or permission, my mother transferred a tract of land with mobile home to my name. I did not learn of this until late September, 2020, a year after my mother's death. I do not want this land, and do not want to go through the hassles of selling it.
I would personally contact a local realtor and sell the property; this will be the simplest way to get this property out of your name. While you could probably roll back the transfer, it would cost a fair amount and be much more complicated than selling the property.
I bought a boat and trailer in NC. The person who sold me the boat and trailer failed to send in the trailer title to be transferred to his name. When he sold me the boat he gave me a bill of sale and said that was enough to get the title under my name. When I went to the DMV they said that they... Read more »

Watauga County building department says state law calls for a five foot setback. If I acquire the property can I remove the current home and build back... Read more »
Without looking at the Watauga County Codes, I can say that you will almost certainly not be allowed to rebuild the house. However, you may be able to claim adverse possession on the area that you thought was owned, but the surveys show was not. Speak to a local real estate lawyer and see what your...Read more »
He was wanting to purchase the property and at one time I had considered it but have changed my mind it is the only thing I own. He is aggressive and says we had a verbal agreement. Is that a binding agreement I never gave him exact amount or had it appraised.
I would have to speak with you about what the verbal agreement may have been, but if you want to evict go down to the local magistrate's office and file an eviction. Speak to a local lawyer to get a better answer about the verbal agreement and eviction options.
my brother, sister and i were left a house in nc by my dad who passed away in nov 2019. my sister had a 1/3 share. my brother bought my sister out. he now owns 2/3 of the house and i own the other 1/3. i'm getting ready to graduate shortly and want to sell my 1/3 of the estate.
You can absolutely force a sale, also your brother has an obligation to you to not damage the house. You have all the rights that your sister had, the fact that he now owns 2/3 has no bearing on your rights. Speak to a local lawyer to see about starting the process for both of these issues.
Will her German will need to be probated in NC or can a deed be done to place property in name of daughter without probate? The daughter lives in Germany. Can the daughter just convey the property to a third party without having it go to her name first? What steps should be taken?
Under NC law a will can transfer property and foreign wills are valid. What you will likely need to do is get a copy of the will formally transferred to the County where the land is located. From there a deed can be drawn from the daughter to a third party. Speak with a local lawyer in that county...Read more »
It depends on your lease, but it definitely sounds like your landlord may be violating your right to quiet enjoyment. Go see a local lawyer and have them review the paperwork and give you their opinion of your options.
