Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Do you know what the basis of the lawsuit is?
Thank you for the additional information. A quit claim deed merely transfers title and legal ownership. It does not prevent the filing of a lawsuit and when the property is subject to the lawsuit it can not be sold nor will anyone want to by it since you could lose it if there is a basis for them to take the house back based upon the subject of the lawsuit. That is why I asked if you knew why there were suing and what they were trying to do. Unless the judge orders that the home be sold and you allowed to keep and use the proceeds, the lawsuit will prevent it at this time. I know you need the money but being that the property is the basis of the lawsuit no action can be taken.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
