My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Maryland
I opened an estate for my father recently. There is a security deposit check I need to get reissued from 4 years ago, (he and his spouse sold a mobile home and a check was issued but never cashed). The spouse preceded him in death by 2 years. The company that will reissue the check wants a death certificate and letter of administration for her estate also (this may or may not be true, only second contact with them). Harford County says since she died first the check should be his estate (and they shouldn't need a letter of admin for her). Is there any way to get the company to issue a check to just him or cash the check in both their names?, this was a second marriage and there was no contact between her family and mine. The company has told me the check will be reissued as it was originally on the contract which they both jointly owned the house. Thank you for any guidance!
