No attorney would have prepared a deed from your father to your mother five years after she died. It's quite possible that someone tried to do that and the deed was voided after your father died. In any event, if you wish to contest the ownership of those properties you must hire a competent real estate attorney who will file a lawsuit to quiet title to the real estate in the name of you and your siblings. If you have a really good case, you might find a lawyer to handle it for a percentage of the recovery. Otherwise you will be facing legal bills of many thousands of dollars. I hope that this information is helpful and that you will enter a positive rating at this time.
