My grandmother and dad (both deceased) are on the deed to property in the state of MD. My mom (lives in NV) is in the middle of legal action - setting up trust and will. How much can she expect to pay to get them off the deed and have her name put on the deed?
I live in CA. I will put my mom’s location in the window below.
One would need to know exactly how the deed is worded (joint tenants with right of survivorship or tenants in common), whether either or both had wills (and what the wills say) to determine who is the owner (or owners) of the property. You can't really do anything until you know that and it sounds like at least one estate would have to be opened for Grandmother/dad. You need to consult a lawyer (probably ) in Maryland

I agree with my colleague. This is probably a probate question that needs to be addressed in Maryland. It all hinges upon how your grandparents held title. I suggest reposting the question in MD under probate once you can determine how title is held. If you are uncertain I suggest setting up a consultation with an attorney in the county where the property is located, if possible.
This response is not intended to create an attorney client relationship. The response is solely intended to answer the question presented. Additional facts and issues are unknown to the responding attorney. Should you still have questions, legal assistance should be sought by making an appointment to meet with an attorney, rather than attempting to resolve the issue via e mail. This response is merely provided to give direction to assist you in the decision of whether you should contact an attorney or not. If this answer is helpful, or is the best answer please mark it accordingly. Good luck.
The answer will depend heavily on HOW the Title is held. I'd proceed in the State of Maryland since that is where the physical property is located. See 'Find-a-Lawyer' on Avvo.com and discuss how to proceed with an attorney that is comfortable to talk with. Good Luck.
