Q: Not sure what type of law my case falls into.
my uncle served me with an eviction notice to move out my grandmothers house who passed away 3 years ago. Im not sure what documents he has because he is a half uncle that has never had any ties to my grandparents nor the house. my mom and aunt were the only two that my grandmother passed the house on to. My aunt and mother have given me permission to live here.but my uncle is trying to evict me claiming the house was passed on to him.so not sure if its eviction law or what kind of law or what kind of lawyer needed for this case
A: It squarely falls within eviction law from your perspective. You definitely need your mom and aunt to appear in court to show they inherited the house from your grandparents and to state you have permission to live there. Your grandmother’s probate record ought to clearly establish who inherited the house. These are public records your mom and aunt should have and you can readily get from the probate court in which your grandmother’s estate was probated.
