My brother & s wife was living with daughter & husband in
My brother & his wife was living with daughter & husband in 1996 and were told to move; having no where to go my wife & I owned 10 acres and we gave them a nontransferable life estate for 1 1/4 acres where they could live for the rest of their lives; with a clause saying if they left and moved it would return to us or our kids... They moved, and signed a quick claim deed to anther daughter; she stayed awhile and signed a quick claim deed to me and my wife returning property back to us!!! Brothers moble home was still here, brother was told to leave daughters home again, so they came back and and moved into moble home; we never at any time charged them rent for the property; only $60 per mo. For water as we are on a well with full RO water; my. 2 daughters, and nephew + 3 neighbors each pay the same for up keep; well my bro. Came raising cane saying he bought the property and wanted the title; which was in both my name and my wife's name so to keep this from going crazier I signed a quick claim deed to them hoping it would do!!! My wife never signed the quick claim deed; my brother died; his wife went to the judge and had the property put in her name; then a couple months later she signed a quick claim deed to her daughter giving her the land; her mom died last year and daughter is trying to sell the land... Does my wife & I own the property or does the daughter??? Thanks... Jerry
I am trying to purchase a foreclosure. The listing says a 3
Hi I am trying to purchase a foreclosure. The listing says a 3 bedroom 2 bath with a large eat in kitchen on a full foundation on almost an acre of ground. My offer was accepted yet the deal can not proceed because the finance company does not have the title to the double wide that is on the foundation. Is this legal for them to sell this home?
I do not have a will. I live in Arizona and I want to quit
I do not have a will. I live in Arizona and I want to quit claim my land I own to a family friend so that in the event of my death he will be able to own it. I do not want him to record the quit claim deed until after my death. Will there be a problem with him taking ownership of the land using the quit claim deed I sign over to him even though it would not have been recorded prior to my death?
This would relate to Texas Property Law. I am looking at
Hi - This would relate to Texas Property Law. I am looking at purchasing a home and a neighbor to that home has alerted me (via a third-party) that she has an ongoing "issue" with the current owner around some rainwater drainage he installed on his property. Her claim is that his drainage system has caused water to enter her home on at least one occasion and is also causing long-term damage to her slab foundation. At this stage, I can't validate her claim. To my knowledge, there is no pending litigation and the current homeowner has not disclosed any issue to me as yet.My question is really whether any liability he may have for her damages up to the date of my closing would transfer to me. I understand if there is a real issue I may need to solve it and can negotiate that into the deal, but who is liable for her claims if she makes them at some point.

A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at myView more real estate law questions
A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at my house has been in place for more than 15 years. Some of the land occupied by this path is on my neighbor's property. Three years ago I put up a fence to enclose the walkway. The then-owner was living overseas, and to my knowledge, unaware of the encroachment.One year ago a real estate developer purchased the next door property. This developer is now telling me that they are going to remove the fence and put up another one along the real property line. Doing this would remove my long-standing access to my backyard.
