Selling a Conjugal Property
We are about to buy a house and lot in a subdivision but the owner is a widow w/o any children.
Her name is listed in the Transfer Certificate Title as spouse.
Now that her husband passed away she want to sell the property. The question is,
if she has the right to sell the property without the knowledge of the siblings of her husband? And also, is there any legal paper needed except for the death cert. and their marriage cert. for her to sell the property?
thank you very for the help
