Hello,we purchased a mobile home park 10 yrs ago. The seller has since married,but our contract states unmarried man. He has since died,but his wife didn't set up a trust until 2 yrs after his death,and didn't go through probate. After his death,we made the check payable to his new wife. What should we do to protect ourselves ? Is she required to go through probate? Thank you
@C M. you should speak to your attorney.
I would go find a lawyer to talk about it since no one can answer your question based on the amount of information you provided. Also when asking questions about probate (or any legal matter for that matter), you always want to explain what state the matter is from.
