So this goes with the other question posted in probate. Apparently this check comes from an escrow on a refi and is a one time deal. Your other post said there was a joint account. Deposit the check there. The old lender is no longer involved once paid off and does not need any additional...Read more »
What is not clear from your post is who is the maker on the check? You provide so much extraneous information that is sounds like the check is coming from the trust that your father is the trustee on. But that makes no sense. IMO you should go to the maker of the check and request that the check...Read more »
It’s a common situation, but every bank and credit union and other financial institution has its own rules. My experience as an estate planning specialist with over 25 years in the field is to simply have your dad endorse the check on the reverse side as follows: “For deposit only”, and then...Read more »
I returned a lease and took another one from the same dealership when they returned the car to the finance co the car was sold for less then the car is worth and now I am being charged for the difference the dealership is saying it’s not their problem am I responsible for the difference
You need to review the terms of your original lease and/or financing agreement. When you return a car at the end of he lease you are at the mercy of the dealer/financing agent, who sell the car at the easiest price to obtain, usually at a dealer's auction where the cars go for a fraction of...Read more »
I submitted the California Small Estate Affidavit to PayPal with a notary attachment. However, the check was made out in my deceased relative's name only. Which is not how other checks have been made out.
Two banks that I do business with, including Wells Fargo, have declined to... Read more »
I would send it back to PayPal along with a California Small Estate Affidavit (free forms online) filled out by the person who legally is the next of kin (or beneficiary of a will if there is a will). Ask them to re-issue to the correct person or persons. Good luck.
I was off the clock. Co worker called me at home. Asked about breaking the ethics rule. I told him if there was nothing else he could do then go ahead. Can I be fired with him if it comes to that? I did not commit the violation but I basically gave the green light.
Can you be fired? Maybe. Insufficient information to make a determination since not possible to tell what kind of rule you are talking about, or that you advocated co worker to break. Does not matter if you are on or off the clock if you are advocating breaking the ethics rules. Ethics do not...Read more »
Yes to Question 1. Look at the contract for Q2. You used up all your questions. Taxes? Which Taxes? Sales Tax? Property Tax? Income tax? Employment Tax? Perhaps you need to discuss your matters with a Tax attorney or an accountant.
This is not banking, it is Contracts. Contact your bank, see what you can work out. Get out your loan documents and read them carefully, maybe the bank made a mistake. It happens. Negotiate with them to get some relief.
This is a Probate Question, not Banking. You should repost so it gets out to the probate attorneys. I don't understand your situation. Your wife was in CA and you are in OR, so you are legally separated? If you are separated, why are you responsible for her debt? Her assets should be...Read more »
You will need formal Letters from the court which authorize you to act as Administrator for the estate of the decedent. Some banks even require letters which have been certified by the court. You will also need a new federal employer identification number for the estate If you don’t already...Read more »
I was told by Best Buy that their staff sometimes don’t know of their own terms and conditions so it’s our duty to read it but how can we do so if we’re at the register with a line behind us. Besides that, they did not tell me upfront that the most important part about this card is the... Read more »
"Best" Buy means best for them, not you. This is a high pressure sales store, even at 19 years old you should have realized that the sales people were pushing you and not for your best interest. You can do much better buys online. At the age of 19, you have reached the age of majority,...Read more »
I freelance as a QB accountant and doing this for one of my clients. Their bank produced years of checks, but can only tell me which financial institution they were presented. I need to find out the name and account number from the respective banks. It is several thousand dollars.
Here is the situations. Husband and wife are both US residents. Husband is a Green Card holder, wife is a US Citizen. Do we need to file any tax form when the husband transfer large assets assets (e.g. money and stocks for $300K) to the US citizen wife? is it best to use a joint account or can the... Read more »
Many financial institutions will only cash checks for their own depositors. Their rules are internal and can change at any time. You might have a case if you believed that the bank was discriminating against you on the basis of a protected classification such as your gender, gender preference,...Read more »

I was contacted saying i am being taken to court by a bank for a default that happened in december of 2010. I do not ever recall having this bank, and cannot find anything on line about it, but they have said they tried to contact me previously which i have never received. Can this "bank"... Read more »
You are not saying what type of debt they allege (consumer, commercial, line of credit, credit card), but if the default took place ten years ago and you did not acknowledge the debt during that time, most probably the statute of limitations would not allow the claim to be filed in court, or it...Read more »
My father passed without a will or testament and has a surviving legal spouse, and two alive children. The Ex-Wife of my father had POA before he passed away and transfered all of the funds from his account to her personal accounts. She then notified the bank who closed his accounts only after she...

You need to contact a Estate/Probate attorney. A power of attorney terminates upon the death of the grantor. If there were any transfers of money after the grantor's death you need to obtain evidence of this through a subpoena issued to the bank or banks where the accounts were held. For this...Read more »
