Divide all of his assets between the beneficiaries. My stepsister told my blood sister that they we’re getting a 2mil life insurance payoff and that they won’t be splitting it up as per the trust. Can she do that?
answered on May 22, 2023
Your question is missing important facts. The life insurance must be paid according to the death beneficiary designation that the owner specified for the policy.
If the death beneficiary is the trust, then the proceeds must be distributed according to the terms of the trust. The trust... Read more »

You probably own it as the sole heir. Hire an attorney to search the title, determine heirship, and possibly evict the relatives. If only a tenant in common, then partition may be in order.

Some people are slow to file a Will or begin probate. However, you can search for filed Wills by name on the Clark County Court website.... Read more »
Spouse dies, does deed transfer upon presentation of death certificate?
answered on May 12, 2022
No, it is not assumed, and even if it was JTWROS, presentation of the death certificate is not sufficient.
You should consult with an attorney, as there are a few things to consider before it can be determined how best get the house transferred.
Deed was joint with right of survivorship
answered on May 11, 2022
Probate is about clearing title of the name of the deceased from property the deceased owned individually - not with someone else like Joint tenancy WROS, so the answer is no.

We live in her home which is in the trust. When she passes can I take over payments and keep the home? She owes 350k but house is worth 700k. We are in NV
answered on Dec 13, 2021
You would be considered a "successor in interest" and, yes, you can just keep making the payments. When the trust administration is complete and the home is in your name, provide a copy of the deed to the mortgage lender and let them know that they should start sending statements to you.
