Hi Dave, ok my friend signed and notaried the new grant deed and listed herself and I on it. Me as a joint tenant with right to surviorship. It is a gift.
My question to you is........When she dies I understand I go and fill out a affidated (?) to put my name only, on the deed. Is her son going to have any right to this property even though my name will be the only one on the deed after she passes? I know that you mentioned that everything needs to be in writing "if the son ever tries to contest the transfer". What can we expect to happen if the son does this and what will be his chances of winning?
