Re: Estate and Real Property
A little more info would be needed. Your condo is located in DC ? your sister and now her husband lives in NYC? did you have a written agreement with your sister? you would need to have the estate probated it can be done in dc the property is here , does your sister and her husband have other property. e-mail me with more info and I could better say what should be done.
