My dh wants to buy a truck from a client who was renting a house to an old man who passed away having no heirs. It's been 3 years since he passed on and the truck is still sitting on the property. The client would love to sell the truck and get it off of his property. It seems that unless you have a lien and put it up for auction the only other way would be to be appointed by the court to act for the deceased. But how do you do that?
