If the question is about a boat involved in a estate and is at a marina the the estate is responsible for the marine bills .

Is that the question ?

This. If there is a will, the will should designate an executor who, in most jurisdictions, gets control of estate assets by getting a court document that says so. If not will, then legal rep is usually identified through intestacy laws and similarly gets a court document that gives them control of assets. A copy of the court document (called different things in different jurisdictions) and the death certificate should be enough to give the executor the authority to act on behalf of the estate.

Do I win the "guess the question" contest?

Not only do we have to give the answers, now we have to figure out what the question is too.
THT is really the best.

Just make up your own question, then guess at an answer and get mad when someone questions you. That covers about half of the responses to real questions on this board.

So you've inherited a boat which is moored at a marina, the rest of the estate and wealth was given to a cat. Is the cat responsible for the marina bill or you ?.
I say the cat is ;?

I would have preferred to ask the question via PM, but since there's such a curiosity, here you go:

"Joe," who lived on a boat in a marina, passed away unexpectedly. It turns out his only heir that lives out of state wants nothing do to with the estate, which unfortunately, is insolvent. The marina will not be paid for slip rent and other expenses, therefore they intend to contact a salvage company to remove the vessel from the marina. The vessel itself has a value of less than $10K.

The question is, how does the salvage company gain title to the vessel without the estate being opened to probate, given that the vessel is still part of an estate? Would it ultimately be considered "abandoned" and fall under typical salvage laws?

To paraphrase:

He who uses the Internet for a lawyer has a fool for a client.

Really, somebody has some skin in this game. Hire a lawyer, albeit briefly. I do this for lots of things - sometimes costs a couple of thousand dollars even. But if I have lots more on the line, it's cheap.

Its easy. Let the salvage company tow the boat away and send you a bill. When the bill arrives tell them you don't have the funds in the estate to pay the bills. When they threaten to attach a lien on the boat tell them they can have the boat and you will sign over the title. Your done and his estate is done and I'm no lawyer.
