How to understand legal lingo in estate property documents?

Aiken, SC |

I have an agreement with brother to sale approx. 2.5 acres out of 11 and I want to make sure the papers that they sent for me to sign are legit because I don't understand what they really say. and don't want to sign away the entire property for the little amount for agreed above. I am in sc and he is in va which is where property is and they have no probate so it is a different type of document

Please take the documents to an estate attorney so that he or she can explain them to you. We cannot do so in this forum.

A local Probate lawyer can explain all the terms in a "lay person's" language.
