My wife and I bought a house from an elderly lady my mother

Hello. My wife and I bought a house from an elderly lady my mother has been employed by for about 20 years. 3 month's after we closed on the house she got really sick and almost left us. Her Godson who is her power of attorney stepped in when she was hospitalized and decided to hire an attorney and make us sign a new deal on the house for more money. The lawyer mentioned she had dementia and did not know what she was doing, but the close from the title company personally went to her to get the docs signed, wrote a statement saying that she know exactly what was going on and would have put a stop to the closing if there appeared to be any foul play going on. There are also 4 employees at the nursing home that said she was totally fine before she got sick. She has a stepson that she also told to sell another property in another city 1 month after we closed and he said that she was in her right state of mind when she told him to sell the other property. A doctor said she had dementia while recovering in the hospital. Can her Godson try to undo the sell of our house? The title president of the title company said that they are trying to bully us into a new deal. This is stressing my wife and I out. What should we do?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. The lawyer has been sending me emails. Nothing in writing or has been filed. I have all the closing docs and the house is already in our name.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so, but I can answer any question

My parents found out they have been named in a lawsuit and

My parents found out they have been named in a lawsuit and were told their house is being foreclosed on because a prior owner, whom they did not purchase the house from, defaulted on a second mortgage in 2012. Is this legal? How can we get their name removed from the lawsuit? My parents purchased the home in 2015 from an investment company with a VA loan and have since refinanced through it through Federal Savings Bank in 2016; none of these companies foind the old debt when they did the title search.

We have land up near Waelder, Tex. We just repaired a lot of

We have land up near Waelder, Tex. We just repaired a lot of the fence. First, the neighbor complained about cows getting on his property. So we offered to go in together since the fence belongs to both. He said he could not(daughter in college). So we said no problem. After the fence was almost complete, he told the guy doing the job that his property was damaged. He reported it to the Sheriff. The sheriff called informing us of this matter. He wants to meet at his office to get our statement. We already told him on the phone when he called, that grass and debris had to be cleared along the fence line to do the fence. Some trees also had to be cut. The fence was placed exactly in the same fence line. He is getting two sides (half) of his fence done.You would think that he would be grateful.I want to know what to expect at the meeting with the sheriff. This man also has placed a gate across the abandon county road which has always lead up to our property. The appraisal district said that you cannot block the road to our property and you cannot put a gate saying no trespassing. The neighbor says that he bought the road along with his property. This rd has always been the entrance to our property. The house was torn down not too long ago plan to build another house or cabin. Please help.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The sheriff said he complained and now he wants to meet and get our side. I think that he reported it.????thats why sheriff contacted us.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
