The Law Offices of Mark Wm. Hofgard, Esq. | Mark Hofgard
You need to consult an attorney immediately. The form of the deed (joint tenancy or tenant in common), whether there is a will or trust, and whether you have opened probate on your husband's estate are at issue. There are also issues as to the extent to which the creditor may pursue collection on the promissory note and enforce the deed of trust. Start by filing the Certificate of Death with the Clerk & Recorder of your county, but definitely contact an attorney for assistance.
