Hello I am a licensed practicing attorney with 20 years’ experience hopefully I can help with your problem. Please give me a moment to review and respond to your question.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

She should be able to pick up the keys. She won't be allowed to sign on the mother's behalf. If there is no power of attorney this may be an instance where a guardianship is necessary until mother can start handling her own affairs again. If the mother is still competent even after the stroke she can still sign off on things. Even if she can not sign her name she only needs to make a mark in the presence of a notary. I have dealt with this on several occasions. For as long as someone is competent an X on the signature line should suffice. Was there a specific situation that you were concerned about?

Ask Your Own Legal Question

As far as the title. The seller would have to sign the title/deed not the buyer. Hopefully she signed whatever else she needed to sign prior to her stroke. However if she is still competent she can still continue to sign documents whether she can actually physically sign her name or not.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
