Which heir was not part of the quiet title? "The 5th heir sold his property to his wife's brother and the brother never did a quiet title on the property." Is this referring to the 5th/missing heir?
Was the missing heir named in the quiet title action?
So 4 of the 5 heirs brought a quiet title action that the 5th was named in but did not participate. Was there a court ruling on he quiet title? Did the 5th object?
When you stated "The 5th heir sold his property to his wife's brother and the brother never did a quiet title on the property." Did they sell their right in this particular piece of property to the wife's brother? Did brother-in law receive a deed? Was a deed recorded.
Can you attach any documents?
In other words what does the title look like today? Have you performed a chain of title search?
Back to the "missing heir" was that heir named in the quiet title? Was notice provided to that person personally or if not was notice published?
