Husband passed away and would like to add our son to our deed as a co owner. Can u estimate a charge to Do this? Thank u.
Adding your so as a co-owner may have consequences down the road which you may not be anticipating. Before you accept the lowest bid to prep a deed (and I must say I am surprised attorneys offer fee quotes on this site, particularly with limited factual information in a posting), you should consult with an attorney who practices in real estate and/or estate planning.See question

Depending on whether he filed a Complaint vs. Writ, and what the contents of any Complaint say, you may have grounds to move to "strike" the LP. Alternatively, you should promptly file a response to a Complaint, to push the case toward a resolution. Without knowing the basis for the quiet title action, I cannot speak to any substantive defense, only these procedural pointers. It should go without saying that you'd be well served by an attorney with experience litigating disputes over title to real estate.See question
I'm making an offer on a condo and it's a new construction - that's built, but projected to be completed in 2 months. in the agreement of sale it mentions "DEED;TITLE: Title to the premises shall be conveyed by Sellers special warranty deed at set...
Yes, it's normal for a seller, including a developer, to convey title under special warranty. If you have a good title company and/or real estate attorney helping you with the deal, they will review the earlier deeds in the chain of title as part of the title commitment and insurance you are presumably purchasing.See question
Being sued for transferring property with a mortgage for a nominal price.
If the suit was fled by the mortgage lender, you should carefully review the terms of the mortgage instrument to determine if the lender's remedies actually include the right to undo the transfer of title. A real estate attorney can help you decipher those sometimes inscrutable terms, and also advise you concerning any procedural and substantive defenses to the action. If you're being sued by another party with another claim or stake in the property, you would need to provide more background information.See question

Has your aunt or mother stated a reason why they have declined to issue a deed on behalf of the estate to you? I suspect, as Attorney Larrimore suggested, that the property may need to be liquidated (sold) to cover debts of the estate. You should consult with an attorney to inquire into these issues, and to make sure your aunt and mother are performing their fiduciary obligations in theirs role as co-Administrators.See question
Bought a home ,had it surveyed, home was not within survey lines. Corrective deed was drawn up with new survey to show home on our property. Can this be contested?
The short answer is yes, a neighbor affected by the new lines could contest the survey, assuming the new lines adversely affect neighboring property (i.e., do the new lines reduce the size of any neighboring parcel?).. One question is how far back in the chain of title does the apparent metes/bound error(s) go? You might need to take judicial action to officially establish the new lines.See question

It's not clear whether you are both a co-mortgagor and a co-borrower. If you're a co-borrower (co-obligor under the Note), you probably need to "sell" your interest to your co-tenant, after she applies for, and gets approved for, a purchase money loan. If you're not obligated on the loan (i.e., if you only singed the Mortgage, not the Note), then you could simply sign a deed to her.See question
Getting old and trying to have all our stuff in both our names.
Adding your wife as an owner is a simple process. The deed will be exempt from state and local transfer tax, but you will pay a recording fee. Also, it is advisable to seek counsel from a real estate attorney to make sure the Deed is properly prepared and executed. A seemingly innocuous error in a deed can potentially cause major headaches down the line. An attorney can also advise on the type of tenancy that you and your wife will hold under the deed. Typically, you'll want a tenancy by the entireties, but some situations are different. If you have a mortgage, an attorney can also help make sure that changing the title does not give rise to a default on the loan. In my view, a competent attorney can present a fixed fee for handling this type of transaction.See question
I moved 2 years ago in Septemeber, we had an insepction before we bought the house. Their were a few things the owners were suppose to fix before they moved out but they failed to do so. Can I sue or is it to late?
The statute of limitations to bring the type of claim that you might have is two years. However, there is a "discovery rule" in PA which can extend the limitations period if the basis for the claim is a defect that could not be discovered earlier with reasonable diligence. It sounds as though the defects you are describing are for items that were known to you at closing. But you still might consider a consultation with a real estate attorney for a firm opinion based on more information than you have presented here.See question
I have a closing coming up for my daughter where we are the co-signers on the mortgage and named on the deed. I would like to know if I need legal services for the closing. It has been many years since I have closed on a property.
I agree with the comments above. In addition to searching Avvo for an experienced, well-reviewed attorney, you could call the county bar association for a referral.See question
