Case #23-0050510


Client needs help getting title to his home back after it was transferred under a fraudulent deed. Client purchased the property over 20 years ago and believed he lost it to a sheriff’s sale while he was living abroad. Upon returning to the US, he found out title had actually been allegedly transferred in 2002 with his signature forged on the deed, and then the property was eventually transferred again in 2015 and 2018. There is a for sale sign outside the house now, but the property is currently vacant. Contact information for the most recent record owner is known. Client filed a deed fraud notice with the Department of Records and contacted the District Attorney, who paused all construction permits on the property. VIP helped client fill out a Tangled Title Fund application, which will be provided to the volunteer. A volunteer is needed to file a quiet title action against the current record owner and represent client throughout his case so he can move back into his home.
