A: You will need a competent SC attorney to read the Deed, and search the Title. But you probably were only conveyed the one signing grantor's interest, so that you are a Tenant In Common with the other Heirs. An Heirship Determination may be in order to see who has Title. Hopefully you did not pay a full purchase price for only a partial interest.
