Can I get money after the death of my mom? Posted on April 09, 2011

Before the death of my Mom om 03-30-2011 we had set the warranty deed as joint tenants with right of survivor ship. What do I do to put the home in just my name? The bank said just do a quick claim deed. Do I have to wait or what? Also she had a life insurance policy for $2500.00 and my Dad was the beneficiary he is dead as well and the insurance company said I would have to wait 45 days then file the appropriate papers then, that fine. The problem is that the funeral cost was $6100.00 and I was going to pay it off before the money from the insurance came. My concern is she had $8000.00 in credit card debt would they get that money or would I be able to get it to reduce my cost when the check came?
