Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
They sued and served you as a potential heir of the property.They are just trying to take it back for taxes here.Since there was no probate filed they have to serve everybody here.
If you don't want to claim it or reclaim it you need do nothing.They will just foreclose on it here and take it back.There is no personal liability on your part , they just have to do this to foreclose.You would have to pay off the taxes here, open probate, and then the proceeds pass to her legal heirs under the Texas laws.
You may choose to do nothing here and let the property go, they just foreclose and take it back.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
You are so welcome.If you can 5 star rate it is much appreciated.
