Q: What do i need to do to protect myself from anyone taking the house. From me?
Iive been purchasing a home from the owner the last 7 years and the owner just died worried the owner sister pulled a bunch of trickery trying to get me out of house when owner was real sick in the hospital awhile back so i fear she will strike again
Hopefully you had a written contract with the decedent and you kept good records. If so, it should be a simple matter of presenting your claim to the probate court.
If you did not have a written agreement then your likelihood of success is greatly diminished but given what is at stake, it is worth a try.
You should have an attorney assist you ether way.
Tim Akpinar agrees with this answer
This will likely come down to the contract that you had with the owner/decedent and his/her estate plan. You should have an experienced attorney review all.
Happy New Year!
