Portland, OR asked in Uncategorized for Florida

Q: Would I have any claim to this property or be able to fight him for it

So my question is I was raised by my grandparents until my 15th birthday that is when my grandma died and my grandpa moved out and left me in the home alone from my 15th to my 17th birthday I paid all of the bills and maintained the house until there was a flood which happened on my 17th birthday when I reached out to my grandpa in hopes to get it fixed he made me leave the home a year goes by no one fixes anything I decide to start using my personal money from work to try to fix the house and then when my grandpa found out he kicked me out again I’m 20 now and was recently told the house was abandoned again and is now empty and has some weird smell in it and is locked up so I was wandering is there anyway I could fight him for claim to the house

That was my childhood home I lived in my whole life

A: if your grandfather 'kicked' you out, I assume he had title, took you to court, and you have no claim to it. If that is the case, no, you apparently would have very little chance of success.
