Sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. In the event his estate consisted solely of the bank account and it was under $25,000, then you would be able to access the account through the use of Nevada's Small Estate Affidavit. Unfortunately, due to the amount involved, this will not be... Read more »

Appears your father died with a guardianship over his person and property. If so, final pleadings advising the guardianship court of his death. This will close out the guardianship. If your father died with the bank account you say no one else has an interest in the account, and you are not a pay... Read more »
Relatives are living there rent free because of health issues. I want to store my dad's belongings there and they are telling me there is no room. I've heard my uncle is going to try and get it. What can I do or where do I start? There is no will. Do I have any authority at all? Please help

Firstly, sorry for your loss.
Based upon what you have said, the house and dad's other assets will become yours as an only child, however the assets will most likely have to go through probate to become yours. You should consult with an attorney soon regarding opening a probate action... Read more »
Aunt and uncle live there rent free because of health issues. I've heard my uncle wants to take it over. Where do I Start?
Any advise would be appreciated.

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.
I am an only child and my father wasn't married. My father was Muslim- I am not. I am female. My father told me about the bank accounts and investments and insurance policies he was leaving me. How do I get them when I'm in Nevada?

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.

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.

It is not possible to answer your question without reviewing the trust. Depending on how the trust is worded, that share might lapse or it might belong to the estate of the deceased beneficiary or it might go to a specifically stated contingent beneficiary. Take the trust to a trust... Read more »

There are way too many missing facts to answer your question. You really do need a full consultation for that.

Her house is almost paid off and it is the only inheritance I have. She wants to make sure I get the house, but I don’t know what’s better - a quitclaim deed or have my mom sell the house to me for a minimal amount.
answered on Feb 21, 2022
Neither is a good idea. The first reason is quitclaim deed is just a method of transfer of real property - it alone does not trigger a tax savings technique. Sale of the residence for a minimal amount will trigger a gift subject to gift tax reporting for any value sold for less than the FMV... Read more »
I live in an owned joint tenancy. One of the owners made a living trust. Does the living trust destroy joint tenancy if that person dies, or does survivorship still apply to the other person on the deed?
answered on Jan 28, 2022
A joint tenant creating as revocable living trust along does not destroy a joint tenancy. What destroys the joint tenancy is a joint tenancy drafting a deed removing his/her interest as a joint tenant. So the action of joint tenant signing a deed (s/he along can sign) conveying a her/his interest... Read more »
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.

NRS 163.170 is a trust administration statute, not an estate planning statute.
