Chino Hills, CA asked in Probate for California

Q: Mom past away, noWill.Home paid off, later she got small line of credit.Wells Fargo jump in an sold b4 probate is it ok?

I just feel weird about how everything was done so fast and everything from house taken to uhaul storage but wont tell me where exactly. Im concern. This was her homestead and the line of credit was very small compared to value of house in Mid Wilshire area of LA. I feel taken advantage of by Wells Fargo bank. Doesnt feel right like even if i drove up to house and stop when i saw our furniture being taken out the people right away hostile threatening to call cops on me. I wasn't even talking i was just looking. Hadn't even asked yet where they were taking our things. I been reading now and i see people make deals with bank they even pay folks to get out but that didnt happen with us. Can someone tell me is this way ok 4 bank to do also pls?

A: It's confusing why this would happen. Did you start a probate case for the estate? Normally a bank would not foreclose unless the mortgage payments were not being made or there was a reverse mortgage that needed to be paid off. You'll have to explain this to an attorney to help you with this.
