Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Who received the deceased person's ownership interest in the property, and how?
If the property interest properly transferred from the deceased person to his wife....then to his child....and eventually to you, then the only name that should appear on the title is yours. But, if there is a break in the title or if probate wasn't done to transfer property interests, etc., then that may be the issue.
In that case, the only real option would be to file a petition to quiet and confirm title to the property in your name, and request a court order finding that title is held by you in fee simple and against all others. If you obtain a judgment finding that you are the sole owner, that should resolve any issues with claims or potential ownership by anyone else.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation. Thanks!
