Eustis, FL asked in Estate Planning for Florida

Q: Father died in 2015. My brother was executor. He deeded house to grandson before he died. Grandson was to pay

Monthly payments of $200 to his three adult children for the house. I have copy of will sent to me showing I am a beneficiary. I sent certified letter to grandson, with copies to my brother and sister asking when I would receive payments but no response. Is there a time limit to claim my payments? What can I do to get those payments that were never made?

A: Sounds almost like a mortgage arrangement. Did the grandson sign a mortgage?

A: Yes, there is a time limit to claim payments. The time limit depends on the facts and what was done. It may be as long as 5 years or could be much shorter depending on what type of claim you actually have.
