An uncle placed a deed of trust on a inherited property my mother has owned for about 27 years. The dot was for about $300 in 1989 he suppostled paid in taxes I don't think there is any promisary note and my mom just wants to sell and has the property under contract but he will not tell us the amt of his lien. Is this valid ? Is the filing of a deed for taxes without a promisary note fraud? How can we get him out of the way ? He is a a real pain. The invalid trust he had filed with respect to the property was finalized by forced mediation after 10 years. He was threatened at the mediation with contempt of court and a night in jail and finally settled. Basically he is a real _____ you pick the word. He is in California. The shell company that has the lien is a permentantly in registered corp in Nevada. Is this fraud. Would a dtpa against the corp and him do any good ?
Meant to say Nevada corp is a delisted corp with state
Also mother is 87 years old and property at most worth 50k
