My father passed away a couple months ago of heart issues. He did not have a Will because he did not own anything. He had a car and motorcycle that were financed and I had the bank take them back as we are out of state and did not want them. Our dad had a bar/grill on contract. The guy that held the contract just up and signed the paperwork over to someone else and let them have all my dad's equity in the bar. Is that legal? I am not sure if it is something worth hiring an attorney over since he did not own it outright, but seems his equity should have been something that we should have gotten, or had the opportunity to sell and get some of his money back. He put $100,000 into the place plus his monthly payments. Plus the food, alcohol and all items inside the bar were taken along with it. He had a lot of unpaid medical bills so not sure it would be worth it, as they would probably take any funds that were eventually won and we would still be out the attorney fees. Perhaps we just got scammed out of it?
