Hi Tony. I hope you are doing well this afternoon. I need some help with a question. I am working with two sellers. They are sisters whose mother recently passed away and they are selling their parents home. The deed for this home still names their late father and recently passed mother as the owners. They are in the process of probating the estate. One of the sisters is the sole executor of the estate, is unmarried and local. The other sister is married and lives out of state.
The question: Who do I name as the sellers of the property? “The estate of ___dad___ and __mom___” ? and is the executor’s signatures and initials the only ones I need? Or do I have to name as sellers; Sister 1, Sister 2 and the one spouse? and get everyone to sign?
