150 Questions Answered
Q. My parents passed with no will and the house still has a mortgage. How do I get the title in my name? I want to sell it.
A: First and foremost, I am very sorry for your loss. As for the house, even though your parents did not have wills, you can start a probate action to be appointed the personal representative of each of their estates. As personal representative, you will have authority to offer their home for sale. There are other issues that will affect this process, such as how long it has been since your parents died, whether you have siblings and whether they will agree that you be appointed Personal Representative. You should absolutely contact an attorney to discuss all of this. The attorney's fees are generally paid from the estate.
Q. My mother passed away in MO & has a reverse mortgage. How long do we have to sell the home & pay back the loan balance?
A: The answer to your question is in the reverse mortgage paperwork your mother signed. The statute of limitations, which is the statute you cite in your question, is a different issue altogether. That is just the time period in which a lawsuit may be filed. Under the circumstances, you should have a lawyer review the paperwork to help you find the answers you need.
Q. Vehicle has been left at my house over a year, it can I charge storage fee? Loan is over 10 years old, get lein release?
A: If there is a lien on the vehicle, you should first contact the lien holder and see if they would be interested in releasing the lien based on the age and abandonment of the vehicle. If they are unwilling to do so, your best bet is to tell them to come pick up their vehicle. I am unaware of a way to release a lien against the wishes of the lien holder, but you also don't have a duty to store what is essentially their vehicle. So do your best to negotiate with them.
