I bought a property and after escrow closed an occupant said
I bought a property and after escrow closed an occupant said he was 1/5 owner and he never signed a Grant Deed to his siblings. The notary lost his book. The signature on the grant deed does not come close to the signature on his drivers license or other documents. Is there any way to verify if the signature was from him or not?The property has one home and 2 adjacent lots. Would the court allow this person with the alleged forgery keep one of the APN's?In the case of a partisan what happens to the proceeds from the original purchase of the property? Do the sellers keep that money and they get paid again or would the title insurance get the 4/5ths amount of the money they paid and I would get the property?

He wants be to sign the and notarize a grant deed, send it to him and he will deal with the recorded deed and then send me the amount we agreed upon.

I would like information regarding easement access. I
I would like information regarding easement access. I inherited my parents property several years back. The residence is nestled in a small track of homes (9) which border an elementary school. Within the last year or so, the school has gone under an expansion effort. At issue here is access to all of our back yards. The home has been in our family since 1955. At the onset, my parents as well as the other families have had rear yard access in the form of a driveway/drive through.With the advent of the construction project, the powers to be have closed off access by means of a wire fence, placed about one foot from our rear yard fence line, prohibiting any access at all. I personally have queried the school office about the occurrence, and they have told us, that we have no recourse. I/We need to know in fact whether we do or do not have any legal recourse. I have discovered the original grant deed provided to my father back in 1955. I also have a current copy of a new grant deed obtained by a fellow neighbors realtor effort. There appears to be some variance on the current deed provided by the neighbors realtor than what appears to be on the original deed. The question being: Do we have any legal recourse at all? This project has caused devaluation of all of our properties.
I'm a financial adviser and a client of mine needs to get
I'm a financial adviser and a client of mine needs to get title insurance on his property(land to build residential home in Los Angeles) but is having an issue. The situation is my client had (keyword) a partner. Partner says he owns 50% of a piece of property and the other owner wants out. Not exactly sure why my client agreed to put the title in the former partner's daughter's name but he did. The partnership goes south and my client says I want the property he paid for. He has the cashier's check receipt which was paid to an escrow company. He did get the property back but it was in the form of a grant deed that reads this is a bonafide gift and grantor received nothing. Chicago, First American, Fidelity and Lawyers Title said they will not provide title insurance even though he can demonstrate he paid for the entire property. Know of a title company that will look at this?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Property is in CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: He's trying to avoid this if possible?JA: OK.
