I have three siblings, one is deceased, and the land that my parents owned was divided among us upon my father's death. My share of the land stayed in and is currently in my mother's name and is supposed to be put in my name upon her death, as I am currently her caretaker and live with her on the said property. It came to my attention through my brother on his deathbed that there was a quit claim deed that was signed, without her full understanding, by my mother leaving the remaining acreage to my brother and sister-in-law. My brother advised me to get this taken care of so that myself and three other families living on the land would not be homeless upon my mother's passing. I have searched county records and I am more confused now than before because it is a disaster. I am unsure where to begin in getting this matter fixed before it is too late. My mother is mentally sharper than ever but she is ninety-one and has a small cancerous spot on her lungs. She is under Hospice care but has had no treatment that would alter her mind. Any and all recommendations are appreciated.
Do not try to fix this yourself. Go immediately and speak with a real estate lawyer. After discussion and a review of your situation, the lawyer will be able to advise you. Trust me, do NOT try to fix this yourself.
