Tucson, AZ asked in Real Estate Law for Arizona

Q: If I suspect forgery on 2 seperate transfer of land actions that occurred in 1988, is it too late to take legal action?

I suspect 1 of my brothers had my mother's name forged on a transfer of 1 acre of land located at the eastside of Tucson, (my senile father signed an the same transfer-of-land document when his nieice asked him to sign a document for her school, though he didn't know what he was signing). Both parents vowed to me that neither were ever in the presence of a Notary Public to sign the Transfer-of-land paperwork. The niece then worked at or near the Tax Assessor's office.

A: A forged deed does not transfer title. Additionally, a deed in Arizona is required to be notarized.
