I was taking care of a guy for a few years and when he found out his kids where trying to put him in a nursing home he signed and notorized a quit claim deed to me so they couldn't get his home and land. I never turned the quit claim deed in. I still have it. Also nobody made us move from the property. his kids called light company and told them he was gone into a home they shut power down and wouldn't let us turn it back own due to we had no lease of the property. So can I legally still go on that property and can I still obtain ownership of theis property. Just to mention there is also a will giving me the property at his death as well
This is either a real estate or probate question, not elder law and I have moved it to that section. The issue is can you record a deed after the grantor has died. See a real estate lawyer to confirm the deed is good and the attorney will let you know if you need to see a probate attorney as well.
It's not clear from your comments whether the man for whom you were caring has died, so it's difficult to categorize the post. Additionally, I'm not sure what you mean when you say that you (both) "had no lease on the property." Presumably, either you owned it (assuming the QC deed is valid) or the man owned it (if the QC deed is not valid) and, in either case, your ownership rights do not require a lease to restore power to the property. I suspect there is more to this story. As suggested by my colleague, I recommend you contact a real estate attorney to inspect the deed and advise you as to your property rights.
My comments are not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship, are not confidential, and are not intended to constitute legal advice. Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed as an attorney in the state where the law applies.
