Does anyone know how I can find out if my Mom's house was sold?
My Mom died on September 7, 2009. My cousin..the trustee of her estate...was supposed to sell her house as she instructed and the money was supposed to be divided evenly between her seven grandchildren. The money was supposed to be put into a trust and each child is supposed to get their share when they turn 30...some of course will receive more than others because of the interest earned. My oldest daughter..her oldest grandchild,,,will turn 30 in February and we have no idea if the house has even been sold yet. I tried looking up the property records and the only thing I can find are the records showing that the land my brother inherited was transfered to him. I've also been checking the realty sites every month since October of 2009 and I have never seen it listed. My daughter and I feel that my cousin is not being honest and is withholding information from us. Both of us feel that we have the right to know if the house was sold and for how much. I live in Idaho and can't check on the house as often as I would like to. My daughter lives in Utah but she isn't comfortable going to the house and seeing if someone is living in it. She is still having a hard time imagining someone other than my mom living there. One of her friends drives by occasionally and they told her that it looks like some remodeling had been done on the outside of the house but they can't tell if anyone is actually living there.
