Q: How to put a house in my name out of my deceased grandmothers name? Willed to my dad and uncle
My grandmother passed away leaving her house to my dad and his brother, they are giving me the house No conflict or liens on the house ,it is paid for. How do we change to name on the deed to put the house in my name? I have a copy of the will, the deed, the death certificate and the power of attorney (which was in my dads name). Where do I go from here?
A: First, you need to hire a probate attorney to probate your grandfather’s estate and get the property into your dad’s and uncle’s names. After that your dad and uncle can sign a deed transferring the property to you. You should hire a real estate attorney to help you do that correctly.
