My dad passed away his house was in his name and mine as tenants in common quit claim deed this was done 7 years before. No one was living with him my mom has passed, he was on Medicaid. The state of Michigan sent me a form to fill out September 11, 2019. I filled out sent back have not heard anything from them, it is now February 22, 2020. I have not opened probate, Dad had nothing he was poverty level. My question is what will the state do if there is no probate opened? The house is not valued at very much it is a old shabby house windows falling out home made septic, dad made. It is a burden, costing me money paying taxes. I am on fixed income and can’t afford it. Can I quit claim deed the house to my daughter without getting in trouble with the state not selling it to her giving it to her? and how long of a time limit does the state have to do anything? I am waiting to hear from state, no response. Thank you for your time.
Thank you Gloria
