Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Ok, if the uncle has some proof of some payment made, then it might be best to hold off on any sale until you have time to review everything.

.

Further, if the property is in both uncle's and father's name, I am not sure how you could sell it anyway without his permission. One owner can't sell if there are two owners... unless the buyer is willing to just own 50% of the property.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Contract
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 11 months ago

You could move ahead with a sale if you wanted to, but if he actually had some contract, then he will file a motion for an injunction with the court to stop any sale from occurring. If he has a little evidence, that will be enough for a judge to issue a freeze on the sale until he can figure out what is going on here.

.

And if he has a cancelled check, courts have interpreted that as a partial contract in other cases.. Then the judge has to figure out what the additional terms of the agreement were and if there is enough to actually form a full contract.

.

You really don't want to sell the property and then get sued by the buyer because there is some outstanding issue about whether uncle bought it or not as you would have to disclose this to the buyer as it is a "material fact".

I am the owner now because of probate everything that was dads is mine correct
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I have got to go to sleep
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Correct, If you filed a probate case in court, were appointed as executor, and then the property was deeded over to you from father's estate, then yes, you are the owner of whatever interest he had in the property..
