Probate is probably a bad option with little assets and debt out there. You can check the Courts in the Father's County to see if there are any money judgements out there against him which might also be a lien. Consult a KY attorney for advice about the trailer title.

Yes. Your brother can sell it and the new owner can have you removed. With no will, mothers estate will be divided among her children so you will have to either buy out their shares or sell your share and receive the money.

Life insurance passes outside probate unless the estate is the beneficiary. If the executor is the beneficiary, the proceeds should pass outside probate.

But that is not the end of the inquiry. The question is whether you own the house 100% solely in your... Read more »

They have no right to you house as it passed to you pursuant to the deed. Ask if you can do a dispense with administration. If not, you will have to file to open probate and get appointed administratrix in order to sell the bike. In any event, his adult children probably get nothing.

You’ll either have to reach an arrangement with the estate to stay in the house and rent/buy it or you’ll have to move out. Many factors can’t impact it, but 30-60 days is usually the time given to move if no agreement is reached.

No. The rental and the sale both will have to be at full fair market value in order to preserve your grandfathers estate. You may be able to rent it and buy it later, but they will both have to be at fair market value.

You’ll have to file a lawsuit against the family and the estate regarding the ashes, but certainly nothing is going to be accomplished by 7/30/22. I am not sure it would be worth the cost of filing suit, but that is certainly your decision.

If the home is not in her name, it can possibly be transferred since there is no equity in it. If the hone is in her name, if you can show Medicaid there is no equity, they might possibly start paying. If not, the house will likely have to be sold and the renters will have to buy it at sale.
