The FAAR Board of Directors recently sent a letter to the Stafford County Clerk of the Court expressing concerns about the significant delays many are experiencing getting an estate through the probate process. Families detail waits of 6 months or more with bills and late fees piling up and issues getting needed information from creditors since probate is not complete. Agents fear that some impacted families may face foreclosure if they are not able to pay the mortgage, losing all of the potential equity in that sale.
FAAR copied the letter to the Board of Supervisors and two immediately responded saying that additional funding for the Probate Division had been approved as part of the budget and that our agents should start to see some relief soon. Click the button below to read FAAR’s letter to the County.
