Was the mobile home owned jointly between your father and his sister?
Yes but i believe his sister was put on the deed about a year ago cause my father was diagnosed with cancer. Otherwise he was the only person on the ded
Do you know whether the deed states "father and sister as joint tenants" or whether it states "father and sister as tenants-in-common"
The certificate of title states - Registered Owner with my dads name first or his sisters name
I dont see anything saying joint tenants
Its a mobile home
Unfortunately the "OR" means that the mobile home transfers to your fathers sister by operation of law. This means that it does not go through probate and is entirely the property of your father's sister. You would not be entitled to any portion of the sale.
I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
