Customer Question

I've been living in my grandfather's house, with his knowledge, and without paying rent for the last 6 years. He died a little over a year ago, and since his death I took over the payments to the bank. I am not sure if the bank is aware that my grandfather. Do I and my four children (two of which are registered at the school down the street) have any squatters rights? Has the statutory period now run out? If so, how do I obtain the deed?

Thank you for your question. I need more information. Did your grandfather leave a Will? If not, did he leave a spouse or any other descendants? Has anyone filed a probate case yet? Was he named as the sole grantee on the deed to the property?
