Q: Listed on deed of deceased fathers property. It was sold without my knowledge. They want me to sign away my rights to it
I had to knowledge of being listed on deed. I was told 20 years ago I had no claims to to my fathers estate by a local attorney. Now I find out I’m on the deed with strangers whom purchased it and they want to sell it so they are asking me to sign relinquishing any rights to the land. I was left out by siblings on both the sell of his property and his insurance money.
A: You may be a Tenant In Common by Deed Conveyance or Heirship. You need to hire a competent KY attorney to search the title and determine ownership. You may wish to file a Partition Action or sell your interest by agreement, especially if your interest is insignificant or speculative. Either way you need an attorney, or you might just keep your interest.
