Case Type Quiet Title Skills Developed Client Interviewing/Courtroom Experience/Legal Drafting

Case #22-0048557

In 2016, client saved his uncle’s property from sheriff’s sale, entering into a payment plan for back real estate taxes. In return, uncle agreed to give client title. Uncle owned the property as joint tenants with right of survivorship with another uncle and great aunt who are both deceased. Client tried to record the deed that uncle signed, but the Department of Records told client he needed the death certificates of the two deceased record owners. Then in May 2022, client’s uncle sold the property to a real estate company. In August of 2022, the real estate company sold the property to another real estate company. Since then, there have been multiple attempts to change the locks and steal client’s property by people claiming to own the property. A volunteer is needed to file a quiet title action to help client assert his prior interest in the property and void the fraudulent deeds so client and his 5-year old daughter can safely live in their home.
