The property was originally in my fathers name. My mom and dad signed a deed of trust on the property and my mom had power of appoinment. When my dad passed away my mom paid the bank the remaining balance. Did that make my mom the sole owner of the property? My dad left a will saying how he wanted the property divided amongst family. I don't believe, if the deed of trust gave them joint ownership, he could give the property away. They would both have to agree, right? Now my mom has passed away and left no will. My brother and I are the only children. Was my mom the sole owner at the time of her death, and without a will, wouldn't it go to her direct decendents( my brother and I)? My family is now trying to claim the property after my mom's passing with my father's will. HELP! Thank you.My brother and I have already recieved a deed for the property from a lawyer who reviewed my fathers will, and the deed of trust that was in my mother and father's name. I don't see how our lawyer could have drawn up a property deed for my brother and I if we didn't have the right to the property? With these exact circumstances does the property rightfully go to my brother and myself? I dont see how they can use my father's will for my mother's death? I sincerely appreciate anyone's time who trys to help answer my questions.
