Found some bonds in house in hiding place. Do the bonds belong to me
It depends on what the will says. If you were left all personal property and the charity received all real property, then the bonds belong to you.
Most likely, the estate will require a probate proceeding. Contact an attorney for a full consultation.
Thomas E. Rossmeissl agrees with this answer
A: The specific terms of the decedent's Will should control, and any ambiguity will have to be resolved by the court. Since the estate includes real property, it is very likely that a probate administration will be required. You should consider consulting with an experienced probate attorney near you, or in the county where the decedent resided at death, and get specific advice regarding your rights, as well as regarding the process for going forward. Probate can be relatively simple, and it can also get quite complex, so it is very helpful to have an experienced attorney on your team.
