Estate of Ziegler, E048555

In claimant's petition to transfer property of the estate of a deceased neighbor, seeking an order that the Administrator transfer the house to him, trial court's rejection of an objector's contention that claimant's claims were barred by the statute of limitations is reversed as claimant's claim to the house is barred by Code of Civil Procedure section 366.3 and his alternative claim that he is entitled to the value of his services on a quantum meruit services basis, for caring for the neighbor, is barred by Code of Civil Procedure section 366.2, which establishes a similar limitations period for claims that could have been brought against the decedent had he lived.
