Covington, GA asked in Real Estate Law for Oklahoma

Q: co heir sold parcels via quit claim deed without our knowledge

a co heir sold several parcels of land via a quit claim deed the closing statement says something like forever barring heirs of first part (her) to claims of the property

To have and to hold the above described premises unto the said of the second part as joint tenants, and to the heirs and assigns of the survivor forever, so that neither the said parties of the first part or any persons in name and behalf, shall or will thereafter claim or demand any right or title to the said premises or any part thereof; but they and everyone of them shall by these presents be excluded and forever barred.

If she sold our parts to without our knowledge how can she do this barring us from future claims. The sale was done without our knowledge.

A: I assume that this is property located in Oklahoma.

If you were on title to the property, then the buyers did not receive full title. You possibly still have an interest and remedies.

If this were sold during probate, those records would need to be reviewed to determine if she acted with the authority.
