Recent Warranty Deed questions

I would prefer a lawyer very familiar with Mississippi laws.

I would prefer a lawyer very familiar with Mississippi laws. Some time ago, I inquired as to my disabled aunt transferring 100 acres she has in her name to me via a warranty deed, and afterward, applying for Medicaid, SSI, etc.I have been made aware by several individuals now that Medicaid considers such a transfer fraud within 5 years of the gift, but I have also been made aware that Mississippi has some of the most liberal laws concerning assets and that the transfer could be made if a "penalty" is taken.Can someone please explain to me what that penalty might be and how it works?

While attempting to sell the property, the title insurance company says I have to own it for 4 years, or file a suit to quiet the title. This was never disclosed when I bought it. Was I scammed by the auction house when I bought it?

My father passed away last June, just one week after he and

Good afternoon. My father passed away last June, just one week after he and my mom celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary. He did not have a will. His name was on the deed and he was listed as a married man, but my mom's name was not on that page. Her name and signature are listed on the Notice to Purchasers page. My mom passed away this past November, five months after my dad. She did have a will, in which she left all real estate to me. I have acquired an affidavit of heirship so that I can speak with the mortgage companies. My question is - can the executor of my mom's will and I do a warranty deed to get the deed in my name?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, I apologize. I am in Texas.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My mom's will has been filed with the county court and probated. My father only had the house in his name. Someone mentioned to me that I should not have to get his estate probated because the house was his only possession and since I have been living here the last several years.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I believe that is all.

My husband and his two siblings are heirs to his parent's

My husband and his two siblings are heirs to his parent's estate. The sister is the executor and has made a lowball offer on the house. The brothers discussed the offer and basically said that they would accept that lowball number with a number of contingencies to be discussed. The discussion about the contingencies has never happened. Now she wants them to sign a warranty deed to transfer the deed to her. On the form it said for valuable consideration paid but yet no money has exchanged hands. In the meantime we have decided to reject her lowball offer since she hasn't communicated in over a month and made a substantially higher offer on the property. She says that she rejects the offer because my husband and his brother supposedly already agreed to her verbal offer. 1. Is the verbal offer enforceable since she never met with them to go over contingencies and no money has exchanged hands? 2. Can an executor refuse a higher offer than their own offer especially since her offer was $40,000 below an appraised fair market value? My understanding is that is a breach of fiduciary duty. 3. If the two brothers decide to give in and sell it to her for a lower than fair market value should they sign the Warranty Deed when no money has exchanged hands and no written contract of terms has been presented? 4. Is a breach of fiduciary duties ever a criminal offense in the state of Ohio?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Papers have been drawn up that she wants my husband and I and his brother to sign. Just a warranty deed that according to her transfers the property to her. It says on the form for valuable consideration paid, grant with General Warranty Covenants to Lynn M. Cantor...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
