Q: Re; Probate in WV .. My Father passed leaving me Executor and only Benificiary. Problem getting access to house
Will reads; hereby give, devise and bequeath all the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, real, personal and mixed, whersoever situate of which I may die, seized and posessed ... Problem is his wife of a few short years (who cheated on him) he lost all trust in her, but she won't leave the residence so I can get the belongings and heirlooms out. I did get inside the other day and she has all mothers family heairloom china, antiques and well the house is practically bare and packed up. She thinks she can take everything and live there as long as she wants even though she's seen the will before marriage and after death. Another thing is she's saying I can't come into the home until she decides to move... nor take anything out. There is a lein on the house so I need to be able to come and go to fix it up /prepare to sell to pay the debts. I have asked her to pay money to cover the lein as long as she is living in the home. Nov 19th I was name by court as benificiary
