Typically, the surviving spouse who is living in the home under a probate homestead must maintain the home and pay interest on any mortgage debt. The heirs are liable for reductions in principal. The surviving spouse is not required to insure the home, but if she does, she is entitled to the proceeds for any claim.

If a man dies without putting his wife on the deed to their house how does she get added to it?

It depends upon the state laws when and if the surviving spouse will be entitled to the property. The state probate and property succession laws will apply. If the married couple resided in a community property state she will only need to have the title amended once probate procedures have been completed. In other states, the surviving spouse may not be entitled to the property or may only be entitled to portion of the property, due to the fact that her name was not included in the titling of such. This will hold especially true if the property was bought by the deceased before the marriage.

Can an ex wife put a lien on her ex husband's inherited property from deceased mother?

Let me see if I've got this right... the ex-husband inherited property from his deceased mother. If the ex-wife has no claim to that property, she cannot put a lien on that property. Now if she were awarded a portion of that property in the settlement, and agreed to sell her portion to her husband, she could retain a lien on it until it was paid off, but I'm not getting the impression that's the case here. Basically, if it was never yours to begin with, you have absolutely no justification to try putting a lien on it.

If the property is real property the estate must be probated and any surviving children will become the new owners. You will own your portion until you sell or convey it to someone else by a deed. However, if the other owners want to sell the property and you cannot be found then they could seek a court order to sell your portion of the property and the proceeds would be placed on deposit in your name. Costs and fees thereafter could cause your portion to decrease. Personal property should be claimed within a reasonable period.

Does a wife of 20-years have the legal right to the house when the husband dies without a will and he had children from a previous marriage?

She should have the rights to the house. Normally when a person dies without a will, the state has a default will that they use to determine who gets the assets. Check with an attorney for your state. * In every state the current spouse of the deceased is entitled to the homestead or a portion thereof. Generally the largest portion of an estate is awarded to the surviving spouse by means of the state probate succession laws when the person dies intestate. Furthermore, the primary residence of the married couple is never entered into probate procedure in community property states or included in probate procedure in other states unless the property title bears the names of persons other than the surviving spouse.
