US citizen (Georgia resident at time of death) had a land in France. He had a will but that specific property was not included in Will. What inheritance law applies to this property? Georgia law or French law? I would appreciate if you quote the georgia law section that mentions that.
The Residuary Clause of the Will includes non-devised real property. So the Residuary Beneficary owns the land. You will have to hire a French attorney to cure title there, but I am sure a certified copy of the Probated Will is necessary for ancillary administration.
Not necessarily. Prior to a lawsuit being filed, the parties to a dispute, need, controversy, etc. may enter into land agreement(s) which will resolve the dispute, need, controversy, etc. If the agreement is good for both sides, it can save them a great deal of money by not having to litigate the...Read more »

they did not market the house nor did they locate the tenant. I did not sell the house to the tenant or anyone related to the tenant but to an investment company. Are they entitled to this commission payment? Area of question is Atlanta GA
It depends on the terms of the agreement with the management company. Sometimes the agreement will state that they still earn a commission if the house sells within a certain time even if the agreement has been terminated. Have an attorney review the terms and advise of your options.
