My mom is willing to sell my grandfathers house to me for $1. The property is in a different county than I. Would I have to go to the county that the property is in to do the legal paper work required to put the house in my name? She also stated the first time we tried to do this the lawyer told her she would need my cousins (children of my mother's brother who passed away) and my aunt to sign something. The reason I'm seeking advice is because I live in another county and not sure if I can do the paper work from my county.
I'm assuming your mom is either the owner of the house or the executor of your grandfather's estate, which would make more sense since other relatives have to sign. I highly recommend that your mom have a lawyer handle the sale and figure out who needs to sign what from where. It's really not up to me to decide that. Unless you're taking out a mortgage at the time of sale, there's not going to be a whole lot for you to sign and you might be able to do it remotely. But it sounds like several people need to be in on the signing, so best to have a lawyer involved and do it right.
