Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Has grandmother every been declared medically or legally incompetent by her doctors or a judge?
What was the lien for?
Did she take out a loan on the property?
Ok, if she was legally incompetent when she signed any legal documents, then they can be voided out since she wouldn't have had the mental capacity to enter into a contract.
If the judge has ordered a guardianship, then part of that is declaring her legally incompetent and a "ward" with the guardian being put in charge of her life.
So once you get appointed to be guardian, you can file a suit against the investor to have the contract set aside based on lack of mental capacity.
