Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

How long ago did this happen?

.

Did she actually just sign his name.... not "his name, by her name, power of attorney" or something like that?

.

Does ex confirm that he never signed the deed?

.

And this is ex's sister, correct?

.

.

thanks

Wcirrect she just forged his name and had her friend notarized it. She is a notary and certainly know if it was done by POA it should state POA. She is my ex sister but her brother is the father of my kids which did not know how to hoping about it. The aunt actually rent the home out with no benefit to anyone but her family not even to her brother incarcerated
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Ok, first, this is something he would have to pursue as he is the victim here of forgery. The kids can't do anything and you can't do anything since you weren't the victims. But he could file a criminal complaint with the police and get the DA to investigate the claim of forgery to see if he would file a formal criminal charge against the sister.

.

Honestly, I don't know if he is in prison how he would get the police to come out and take a report, but I am sure it can be done.. Maybe if you talked to a local detective and explained the situation, he would contact ex and help him file a formal complaint..

.

Or you could contact the sister on ex's behalf and tell her that she either transfers the property back to her brother within 10 days or he is going to file a felony forgery charge against her and the notary and they can both come live with him in prison.

.

Once she realizes she is caught, and it is a felony, she would be a fool to not transfer it back. I would probably also contact the notary and let them know what is about to happen so they can put pressure on the sister..

.

thanks

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.
