You will probably need to do a modification agreement with your lender if those that are deceased were co-signers with you. I would suggest you get in touch with your lender to see what is required and to notify them of your parents death. They should be able to guide you through the process. Otherwise contact a good Real Estate Attorney in your area. Good luck !-----Sam Snead GRI.CRS,CRB Front Royal , Va.

Did your parents have their own lawyers? and they didn't have any of their own wills?. Whose been paying taxes and mortgages, and insurance since 2001? The city has a marshall that is in charge. Go and hire your own lawyer that will straighten this all out for you and any other of your heirs. Then go sell the hose.
