Has anyone determined who the actual Heirs-At-Law are? You probably need a competent KS attorney to determine who the present Tenants In Common are, then proceed with a Deed with a complete Derivation Of Title Clause in it, and maybe more.
We signed a contract at the beginning of this year to have a new build be started. Months go by, it still isn’t even started; much less ground hasn’t been broke. We understand contracts can get hairy, so we spoke with our realtor and tried to see if the builder would allow us to break contract... Read more »
There is a plot just short of a half acre that sits right next to mine. The deed holder died in 1999, and his wife in 2000 - she is not named on this particular property even though they jointly owned 3 other properties in the area.

My attorney has not been able to get my discovery and this case is 8 months old he tells me that the courts won't talk to him maby because he is from out of town. He says the only way he believes I can get the discovery is if I fill out a application for Diversion. I told him I believe the... Read more »
It sounds like your attorney is doing his job. Either plead guilty or start preparing for Trial, and a possible appeal. It does not appear that further Discovery will help any more than what you already know.
If a transfer on death deed was filed before the person passed away and was properly drafted, the deed places the property outside of possible claims except for Medicaid. If the person who passed away or her or his spouse received Medicaid benefits during their lifetimes, the Medicaid claims may...Read more »

You will need to search the title first. Assuming you own an interest, you are probably now a tenant in common with another. Depending on what you and your attorney decide, you may need to file actions for Quiet Title, Ejectment or even a Partition. And someone will have to pay taxes, note...Read more »
Mother will have to hire a competent KS attorney to file a Declaratory Judgment and Injunction action. Search both titles for easements and row's. If nothing, she relies on an easement by prescription. Without legal suit she loses the driveway forever.
You have not stated the exact estate you own, but either tenant in common can sell their individual interest. Usually no prudent buyer would purchase without receiving the fee simple absolute conveyed by all titled owners. Partition is also a possibility.
My husband is refinancing his mortgage. We are now married so the bank said I have to be a grantor. It looks like the grantors (both my husband and I) are required to pay the taxes. Is this legal? Should it not say the borrower is responsible for the taxes instead of the grantors? (It specifically... Read more »
It looks like there are a number of different topics/questions here. Generally speaking, a bank will want both spouses to sign the mortgage, which is to say they want both spouses to consent to the lien being attached to the real estate. As a married couple, both spouses have an interest in the...Read more »

A deed can include any group of people. A lender would not typically have a preference with respect to partners, so long as the partners were otherwise approved for the loan. Your question references a rent-to-own arrangement. The landlord would have some discretion over what arrangement they would...Read more »
It is good practice for any real estate transaction to include a sales agreement that details the transaction, identifies the escrow procedure, and explains what "as is" means. Good practice also includes a seller's disclosure statement that communicates what is known about the...Read more »

My husband passed away 3 years ago in Kansas. He had properties in Kansas and Arkansas. The executor for his case requested documents in this past February. I haven't hard anything about this since then. What can I do to get updates for this case and move on?
Surviving spouses certainly have rights in Kansas. If there is reason to think the administrator/executor isn't doing what they need to be doing, I would strongly encourage you to talk to an attorney. They may be able to file certain motions with the Court to get things going, or there may...Read more »
