I'm going through this now. Send a registered letter requesting a financial statement of the account of the estate and put a time period for them to answer even better to send it to the estate lawyer. If that fails hire a lawyer to request it for you. You must be named in the will as a beneficary

Only if you are the estate lawyer or have been named executor of the estate. No one else should be allowed to have a copy.

If he had a lawyer there may be a will and you should be able to find out from the lawyer if you are included. The Executor of his estate may also have the will and you should be able to see a copy or at least find out. Otherwise his estate will go to probate court and the judge will determine how the estate is divided.

The executor needs to maintain an account in the name of the Estate of the deceased, which can be opened by furnishing the bank with a copy of the Estate documents that name the executor.

The executor is required to provide a full accounting of the estate to the probate court. It is a matter of public record. You should be able to get a copy from the court.

It all depends on whether the father is living or not. If he is living you must ask him. He has no legal obligation to show his will to anyone. If he is deceased and his estate was probated you can visit the court and obtain a copy.

If the estate has been filed for probate you can go to the probate court and read the will. Once a will is filed for probate it becomes a public record. You can even get a copy to keep for your records.

Part of it will depend on the wording on the deed. If it has rights of survivorship, they estate can probably sell it by providing a copy of the other relative's death certificate. Otherwise, they may have to open an estate for the deceased relative so the executor can transfer the title.

If your father is living you are not entitled to a copy of his will. If he is deceased and his will has been filed for probate you can obtain a copy from the court. Once a will has been filed it becomes a public record.

You can get a copy of the will from the records department from the state court house where the death certificate was filed and get a copy of that, too. If the department doesnt have the will part you must find out who was the attorney that handled the will and get with them, immediately.

If you were related to the deceased, you will need to take a certified copy of the death certificate to the motor vehicle office in your region. If you are not related, then the "estate" will most likely have to auction it off or sell it.

in the probate office of the county the deceased resided in.

You only need to call the office, let him/her know your mother has died and request an original copy of her will. At the same time you could inquire about having that attorney represent the estate.

User Avatar

Ask the Executor for a copy. Added: If your mother has not yet died, neither you, nor anyone, is legally entitled to a copy of it, unless she wants to give you one. If your Mom is deceased, see Answer #1, OR- go to court and ask to see a copy of the probate file concerning her estate.

The estate should take care of that change. It can be a simple as filing a copy of the death certificate with the deed.

You can open the estate the next day if you wish. You need a copy of the will and the death certificate.

In the event the step father is deceased, yes. But, you will need a copy of the death certificate showing that he is in fact deceased. Also you will need to know if he had a will that willed the property to someone else.

User Avatar

No. Just send a copy of the death certificate to the creditors, they have to write it off. They may try to tell you that you have to pay, but you don't have to legally. The creditors do have the option of going after your father's assets/estate to pay the debt. Any of his debts will first be paid by his estate. If anything is left it will be given to his heirs.

No it is not. Even if you were asked, you could always show a copy of your birth certificate. If you can't locate it, you can obtain a certified copy from the town clerk in the city or town you were born in.

need copy of will of deceased south African

After the individual is deceased, but not before. If the will has been filed with the county court, a copy can be obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, but few people do that for that reason. Once the estate is opened, the beneficiaries and those with an interest (natural heirs) would be entitled to a copy.

Send them a copy of the death certificate letting them know that there will be no estate set up and consider it a closed matter.

In Illinois the estate should take care of that change. It should be a simple as filing a copy of the death certificate with the deed.

You can obtain the certified copy of the will from the registrar's office if it is registered by applying for the same along with the death certificate of the deceased person.

you cannot close the account unless you are the executor of the estate, if you are then you must take a copy of the death certificate to the bank and they will close it for you. If the deceased died intestate, then you must go to an attorney and they will help you close the account via the bank.
