My father and my aunt jointly own some valuable property in the Utica shale oil play of Ohio. My father is in his 80s and in ill health. It is his wish that they add my name and my sister's to the j/s deed on the property so that it will be jointly held by my aunt, my sister and I upon his death. My aunt is saying that she does not want to change the deed but that we should not worry about it because it will all belong to us one day any way. There is a potential for a great deal of oil royalty revenue in the near future as the land is already leased to a major national oil company and wells are being drilled all over the county. Is there anything short of partition that we can do in order to see that my father's wish that my sister's and my ownership is assured prior to his death?
