Case #22-0048974

Client seeks assistance taking title to her home. The deceased record owners are client’s mother and father, who shared title as tenants by the entirety. Mother died first, and father, who re-married died intestate. Father’s new wife is willing to sign a renunciation and give her interest in the property to client. Most other heirs are also willing to give up their interest in the estate, although a small percentage of the interest will remain in father’s estate. VIP is assisting client with filling out the Tangled Title Fund (TTF) application to assist with costs associated with the process. A volunteer is needed to assist client with probating her father’s estate, including drafting a deed transferring title of client’s home to her and completing the inheritance tax return.
