Q: Property in TN, both owners are deceased. Can the only living decedent of one of the property owners Warranty Deed it?
Property in TN, both owners on the Deed are deceased. I was able to get in touch with Daughter (lives in KY) of the deceased. I want to purchase property from Daughter, will a Quit Claim Deed or Warranty Deed be needed? Or what is needed to purchase property from Daughter?
A: Hire a competent attorney to search the title, determine heirship and prepare a Deed. Warranty Deed can be used, but do you plan on suing the Seller? She might not want to give four covenants of title to property she has not had possession of. QCD is more likely her choice of conveyance.
