My husband passed away 10 yrs ago. We have a house w/land

My husband passed away 10 yrs ago. We have a house w/land that is in both names and later purchased some adjoining land that was only put in his name. We wanted to leave these properties to our 4 children.I made a new will a few years ago that leaves the properties to our kids.Can I file for a quit claim deed to put both properties in only my name? My husband was previously married and has a estranged daughter and we never wanted her to receive any of our properties. I was hoping this might make it easier for our children after my death.Can doing this also prevent probate process since I have no debt? Thank you, ***** *****

A co-owner of a jointly owned property organized a loan for

A co-owner of a jointly owned property organized a loan for repairs on on subject property. A promissory note was drafted, secured by a deed of trust signed only by the lender and that co-owner. Both joint tenants enjoyed the benefits of the loan, yet only one co-owner signed the paperwork (the one who organized the loan), and the other claims not have not known about the loan (of course not questioning how repairs were paid for). One of the terms indicates that immediate payment is required "if there is a sale of the material portion of the asset of the borrower." Can the lender still enforce the terms of the loan, and attach it to the real property at the recorder's office for collection?

Can I still record a lien on a property in joint tenancy

Can I still record a lien on a property in joint tenancy that is in the midst of a partition action? The original complaint did mention the "any and all interests" and I would guess, tenants,creditors, partnerships,etc. These loans include those made for purchase (Private funding with promissory note), repair/improvement (20 Pre-notice served), and those for development made by investors( also with notes). I want to make sure loans made in regard to the property are paid off first if the partition action results in a forced sale, and not get stuck with them.When a promissory note is filed in the County Recorder's office, how is that done when I am one of the joint tenants with 92K of receipts that went toward property repair? Is the lien placed on the property or the individuals? In essence, knowing that much of this would be at the discretion of The Court and there is no guarantee one could meet the burden of proof for reimbursement, might this be a surefire way to get "any and all interests" paid off first?A Tentative Decision has been made, is subject to review, challenge,correction, and proposal per CRC3.1590/1591, before a Statement of Decision is rendered.

In the state of Wisconsin, I'm the primary and my exgirlfriend is the co borrower on my mortgage. I purchased the house on my own but added her on a few years later. The relationship is over and she wants her name off the mortgage and wants 1/2 of the equity in the house. We were never married- is she entitled to a buyout? Do I legally have to pay her 1/2 the equity to remove her from my mortgage?

I own in partnership with another individual a piece of

I own in partnership with another individual a piece of property with a survivorship clause. Some time back I decided I would like to cash out on this lot. My partner told me he did not want to sell and did not want to buy my share and because I am twenty years older than he, his intention was to wait for me to die so he could have my share for nothing. Can I transfer my ownership to my sister and at the same time nullify the partnership clause?
