Legal Question

Asked on: 9/11/13, 7:15 pm

My father passed away in February, and I continued to drive his car registered in his name (my only car, I am a 22 year old recent college graduate). I am now being told that in the next coming months, I will have to actually buy the car from his estate (an estate that will be under my full control when I turn 25). Either that, or the car can be liquidated and that money would go into the estate. I am just not so sure how this is logical - given that my father named me sole beneficiary in his will. Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

Has the estate gone to probate? If so, the car should be given to you by the Executor per the will. You must register it in your name.
