Closing lawyer and Realtor failed to advise how to hold title when buyer expressed he was disabled and dying. Never was it the intent to be co-owners with a child but rather to see child got the home in the event of death. deed shows them as Joint Tenants with rights to survivorship. Father contracted to sell home and re-invest in bigger better home but come time to close father buyer discovers child on deed their lawyers say dad must do a long costly process of requesting court permission Dad is child's payee did buy home with his back pay.. No trust was made in writing, no transfer, no gift in writing all are required by WV Code. Child is named as adult not as a minor, Closing Lawyers office rep already admitted to the mistakes not advising, not realizing it was a minor.
Appoint a guardian for the child for the limited purpose of executing the deed. An experienced attorney should be able to help.
