My mother passed away. She left a will saying who should receive which items. However, my mother's will lacks a lot of useful information. For example, the will does not state where the title document is for the house. It has been agreed that we will sell her house, but I have no idea where to get the ownership papers.
If my mother had a safety deposit box, I have no idea which bank that safety deposit box is. 90% of my mother's belongings went to the local Good Will. We combed through anything for important papers, keys, etc... but did not find a title to the house, or anything regarding a safety deposit box.
My mother's attorney, who I hoped might have some relevant documents, has retired, wants nothing to do with managing my mother's estate, has declined to be her "personal representative," and says he doesn't know anything about her affairs.
My mother lived alone for many years up until her death. Nobody was living with her.
I am in the United States. Specifically, my mother's house was/is located in Arizona.
