I found a nice house at a great price and want to buy it. I made an offer and it was accepted but there is a problem.
After the bank got the house by foreclosure and got a deed and recorded it, the old owner gave a deed to her brother.I'm not sure if it was a regular deed or a quick claim deed.
The old owner said the foreclosure was not valid,
The broker says if I buy the house "as is," I have to get an attorney to clean up the title.
I want the house but think the bank should get rid of the deed that was given by the former owner.
What has to be done to remove the illegal deed given to the brother.
Approximately how much would it cost me to have an attorney remove the illegal deed?
The house cost is $165,000.
