Beaver Dam, KY asked in Civil Litigation and Real Estate Law for Kentucky

Q: I had a land contract paid it off however before it transferred they passed. How do I get the house and lot in my name

I bought the house and land from my grandparents. My grandpa passed in 2014 and my grandma in 2018. I paid it off in early 2018 right before my grandma got sick and passed. They have 3 children and two aren’t wanting to give me what I rightfully paid for. I have been threatened to be kicked out of my home and them try to give my home to one of the children’s children. I have the land contract still and can get all copies of the checks I used to pay the land off with

A: You’ll have to file suit to quiet title if they won’t transfer the property to you.
