A: if the Deed meets the requirements of your state, it may be found valid. However that's assuming all of the signatures are authentic. If you feel there may be some wrong doing, I suggest speaking with an attorney in your jurisdiction who may be able to help you ensure your mom's rights are protected.

A: Have a competent attorney search the title now. If it is a Fraudulent Instrument, then Mother has to file a Quiet Title, etc. Action quick. A Notice Lis Pendens would also need to be recorded.
