Legal Answers
52 Questions Answered

Q. How should a PayPal account of less than $1000 be handled when nothing else of the deceased's required probate?
A: Have not tried it with PayPal yet but most banks will release accounts of less than $10,000 when provided with copy of death certificate by surviving spouse and proof that the funeral has been paid for
Q. My adult daughter died suddenly without a will in PA. She was disabled, owned nothing & only has a bank account.
A: Assuming that your daughter had no Will, was not married and had no children, as the surviving parent you should be able to go to bank with a copy of death certificate and proof that the funeral has been paid for and the bank should then be willing to give you the money since it is less than $10,000. Most banks are willing to do this. Some of the larger national and regional banks are more difficult to deal with on these small accounts.
Q. What does it means to no longer live in a home pertainining to a Will
A: This is a case where cannot give you an answer without reading the exact words of the Will. But in general conditions in a Will such as this are enforceable. So if the Will names a particular sibling, and states that the house is to be sold if that sibling is not living there, and that sibling is not living there, then the house will be sold as part of the estate administration.
