My husband passed away recently without a will. We owned a house together, and the house has a mortgage that has not yet been paid off. We also jointly owned a small tract of land in another county together, but besides this land, my husband owned no other property and had no other debts. I am trying to refinance the mortgage, but Wells Fargo is telling me that my husband's estate needs to go through probate. I tried to do a small estate affidavit, but I was told that this would not work, because of our second property. What should I do? Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I would have to review your husband's other assets (bank accounts? cars?) Assuming there is no other assets, I can clear title to the property using affidavits of heirship. Feel free to call or email.

excellent advice from David Leon because in practically every county in Texas, you must have a lawyer
