no i been dealing with this since 2009 she recently said after all this time she doesn't want anything tio do with my parents things and i been paying all the bills since 2009
Real Estate Lawyer: J. Warren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago
I am sorry you have been dealing with this situation for quit some time. A quit claim deed can be used to pass interest in the property. She could have disclaimed the gift but this must be done within a reasonable time (presumed to be 9 months after the death of the decedent). She can not be forced to sign the quit claim deed if she refuses to do so. Unfortunately, that would take a partition suit to have a court order division of interest in the property.Given the complexity and the issues that have arising, it really would be beneficial for you to retain the services of a local attorney to help prepare the necessary deed and documents to be recorded.All my best and encouragement. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! Please press a positive rating above this message box in the ratings section so I will be paid for my time assisting you on this matter. Pressing a positive rating will not cost any additional money - it is simply the trigger used by Just Answer to pay me for my time (pressing the middle star or the fourth or fifth star on the right are all positive rating buttons).

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.
