How does my mother get her home in her name if her husband has died and the title company has went out of business?
Cody R Cooper ∙ August 1, 2019
The answer to this question depends on what state the property was in and whether or not the property was held in joint tenancy or as tenants in common. The deed to the property could typically be found at the county recorder's office. Also, it should be noted the answer may change depending on whether or not the state is a community property state or not. I would recommend speaking with a LegalZoom attorney in your state for the process and paperwork.
