A: All owners must sign all deed transfers. You can look up records in the county online.

A: If someone filed a quitclaim deed without getting your signature, you would need to hire a real estate lawyer, preferably a real estate litigator, to resolve the issue unless the person who prepared the deed is willing to record a new one putting the property back in your name.

A: No, this should definitely not happen if you were the owner via a Quit Claim Deed, a review of the previous deed and document would be in order, but if you were the owner via Deed, they cannot convey it without your approval, agreement and signature. It is possible that maybe it was not a Quit Claim Deed and therefore could be changed (for instance, if it was an Enhanced Life Estate Deed/Ladybird Deed).
