Q: My son died and had a storage unit in california. What forms do I need to fill out to access his stuff?
A: If you son died and the estate is under $100,000 there is a California Code Section that deals with the procedures. You must wait a certain amount of time, 45 days at last count, then draft a Declaration stating that you are the representative for the heirs and with a certified copy of the death certificate you can access bank accounts and other assets.
I would suggest that you speak to your local probate attorney who can give more accurate direction based on the specifics of your case.
