Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Welcome and thank you for your question.
You would not have a duty to pay taxes until you were actually named as owners on the deed. The tax bills are sent to the owner of record. I am a little confused as to how the deed ended up in the uncles name. The only way real property transfers is by deed or through an estate. Can you explain what occurred with Uncle? I would like to see the instrument that required you to pay taxes. Where is there a written estate document that requires you to pay taxes?
