nbsp;I’d first talk to a title company down in the state you’re selling. You could need ancillary proceedings. Typically not but with that many states it’s possible. Talk to the title company locally first and go from there.
Customer
StevenH, Thank you what are ancillary proceedings.

Probate in those states.  You may need authority from the local Courts to sell the properties.  Only a title company and Court can bless that.  I suspect it will be needed.

Customer
likely I should get an attorney or let the buyer of I’m selling to get one

You'd need one.  It's a seller issue.  The buyer will not pay for it.
