My boyfriend owned land in NC left no will. The deed In his name only. I have talked to the children and they do not want the land or pay the delinquent taxes due? The city is going to foreclose on the land. If they are willing to gift or sell the land to me what do I need to do to own the land?
You need a deed from all the children and their spouses, and to pay the back taxes, probably to both the city and county. Any NC lawyer can draw up the deed, but it would be advisable to get one more local to ensure that foreclosure proceedings haven't been initiated.
I am completing State of North Carolina form AOC-E-204, AFFIDAVIT OF COLLECTION, DISBURSEMENT AND DISTRIBUTION. I retrieved a car and household furnishings from my deceased son's apartment the week after he died. The form asks who I received those items from. How should I answer that?
For it to be self-proving, then yes, it must be notarized. I highly recommend that you make your will self-proving as it saves time for your family when something happens to you. I also recommend that you employ an attorney to draft the will as many online versions are minimally sufficient at best...Read more »
It depends on many factors, whether or not the deceased had wills, how the property was titled, what the marital status of the deceased was at their death, and who their legal heirs were. I would hire a local NC attorney to answer these questions, and from there, you can proceed forward.
verbal agreement with our cousin over five-plus years ago to live in the (questionable habitable) house rent-free. We are not interested in being landlords and very concerned about the habitability of the property. We would like assistance with the rights of both parties.
Under your scenario, provided that you are now the owners of the property you have the right to revoke your cousin's ability to live there. There is likely a very minimal landlord-tenant relationship, so I would give at least a 7-day notice and hope that your cousin agrees to moe out otherwise...Read more »
In NC, when two people die with 120 hours of each other, they are treated as dying at the same time as each other. Any joint property would pass 50% under one will and 50% under the other will, and any individually owned property would pass per the will. I highly recommend that you hire an attorney...Read more »
Depends on the bank's policies, if you are uncomfortable with this, you can withdraw all the money from the account and move it elsewhere. I would talk to the bank about this and see what they say happened.
You should contact a local traffic lawyer, as you can likely get this plead down to 9 over which will not affect your insurance as long as you have not had any moving violations in the past 3 years. Each county has its own procedures and may or may not plead this down.
You probably have a good argument that the quitclaim deed was signed either under fraudulent circumstances or duress. Either way, you need to contact a local attorney as this is going to take a lawsuit to get fixed. Your lawyer will need to sit down and discuss all of the details to determine what...Read more »
No, but you will likely have to post a bond. Many clerks require bonds from out of state executors. If you are planning on doing this, I highly recommend hiring a probate attorney to handle the case as it will greatly reduce the amount of work you would have to do.
Talk to the clerk; they have likely handled this situation many times before and would be willing to close the estate or do something else to allow you to close the estate. They don't want the estate open any longer than you do.
Grandmother just passed and has no living spouse or children left. Her last living daughter was her power of Attorney over her money but she passed away several months ago.

If you have living parents, and he had not children then all the money would go to your parents before it went to you.

It is my understanding that you are not protected by USERRA for your trip to MEPS. Unfortunately, you are only protected for the time you are actually serving. I would look at this as a good thing, your employer was probably going to be very difficult once it came time to fulfill your guard...Read more »
