Customer Question
Hello. My mother...

Hello. My mother does not live in the main house where my brother and I currently live. Back in 2014 she named myself and my brother as remainderman on the property. She stated that she just signed a deed giving my brother the property and leaving me out. Very upsetting as I have lived here my entire life mostly. Don't I have any rights as I was not asked to sign the deed? Thank you..

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No it just happened

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the house located?

It is a separate dwelling in Havre de Grace Maryland sitting on 2 acres

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. There is no specific course of action is proposed and no attorney-client relationship or privilege formed within this conversation. (You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.)

Unless the life estate deed (which also made you the remainderman) specifically states that she can reverse the deed without your agreement (which I doubt), she cannot do this.

Without that specific reversal verbiage in place, she cannot deed the whole title away without you signing off on it. Meaning, her latest action is (arguably) void. To confirm this, you may wish to file a QUIET TITLE asking the Court to confirm this, and void her latest action.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
