NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF:

VICTORIANO CEBALLOS LOPEZ AKA VICTORIANO LOPEZ CEBALLOS

CASE NO. 20STPB01908

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the WILL or estate, or both of VICTORIANO CEBALLOS LOPEZ AKA VICTORIANO LOPEZ CEBALLOS.

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by DULCE MARIA LOPEZ in the Superior Court of California, County of LOS ANGELES.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that DULCE MARIA LOPEZ be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act with limited authority. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 04/09/20 at 8:30AM in Dept. 79 located at 111 N. HILL ST., LOS ANGELES, CA 90012

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. 

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.

YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

GENERAL ALLEGA TIONS

 

 8. On or about November 9, 2018, Plaintiff/Buyer submitted an offer in the amount of

 $875,000.00 to Defendant/Seller, via a California Association of Realtors Residential Income Property

Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions Agreement (“Agreement”), for Plaintiff/Buyer’s

 

purchase of the real property commonly known as 3870 Clinton Street, Los Angeles, California 90004,

and more particularly described by Los Angeles County Assessor’s Parcel Number 5539-029-034 (the

incorporated by reference.

9.The Property is a three (3) unit multi-family residential apartment building, with 2,376

10. On November 11, 2018, Defendant/Seller accepted Plaintiff/Buyer’s purchase offer by executing the Agreement via wet signature and thereafter having the fully executed Agreement transmitted back to Plaintiff/Buyer, with Escrow No. 43685-40 being opened with North Hills Escrow Corporation.

 

11. Under the terms of the Agreement, Plaintiff/Buyer made an all cash purchase offer with

15. Defendant/Seller thereafter refused and has continued to refuse to complete the sale of the Property to Plaintiff/Buyer pursuant to the Agreement.

23. As a further direct and proximate result of having to move for the specific performance of the Agreement, Plaintiff/Buyer has been forced to retain counsel to enforce its rights pursuant to the Agreement, and are therefore entitled to attorneys’ fees and costs pursuant to paragraph 34 of the Agreement, and according to proof at the time of trial. 

 

SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION

24. Plaintiff/Buyer re-alleges the allegations set forth in Paragraphs 1 through 23, and incorporates said allegations as though fully set forth herein.

30. As a further direct and proximate result of Defendant/Seller’s breach of the Agreement,

Agreement, and according to proof at the time of trial.
