In 1978 I signed the sale papers on my deceased mothers home. I was only 17 at the time. There were six other names on the deed. And one of my sisters was not listed.Was/is this a legal sale?
Hello. My name is XXXX XXX I will be glad to help you.
Are you online with me?
good morning to you
Unfortunately because this deed was executed more than 30 years ago, while you can try to raise a "quiet title deed", it would be extremely unlikely that you would prevail in setting aside the sale that took place so many years ago, despite the fact that one of your sister's did not sign the deed and also you were under age of 18.
I meant quiet title claim, which means you would file a lawsuit and challenge the validity of the title.
Do you have any related follow up questions?
is a quiet title claim the same as a quit claim deed?
Quiet title claim means that you would file a lawsuit based on the claim to the title to the property. Quitclaim deed is a document that transfers any interest in the property that the grantor has.
