I was told that if I change my name on the deed it would "trigger" my Heloc to come due and I would have to refinance. This makes no sense to me as I am still the owner and the bank has my maiden name on everything. Is this correct or can I just go into Horry County and have it... Read more »

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...Read more »
Yes the NC attorney can draft a Deed. But I doubt Grandmother will be getting a new Deed, as survivorship probably determines Title here. You at least need an attorney to review the present Title if not search it.
Consult with a competent SC attorney to exercise your Redemption Rights quickly if you still have them. Time is of the essence. It will take money, or forget it as someone should have paid those Taxes.
The neighbors have a driveway to their property on the backside of their house. The easement is not granted in the deed. How do we go about keeping them from using the driveway that is on our property?
A man passed in Michigan where he and his wife were living at that time. He and his wife own land in SC worth $4,000. Does the land automatically go to her without filing probate in MI? His entire estate was less than $20,000.
The wife is trying to sell the land in SC but this issue arose... Read more »
This is a question that depends on South Carolina law. A Michigan probate court does not have jurisdiction to decide matters regarding real estate located outside the State of Michigan. Other states could have a statute though that allows South Carolina to recognize ancillary probate proceedings...Read more »
His grandfather is paying a mortgage on the house my partner inherited, and he is threatening to foreclose on the home. What rights does my partner have? Will we be forced into homelessness with no further say in the matter?
Whoever owns the mortgage is the one the that can foreclose. If the notemaker buys the note, then he can foreclose. It sounds like he is threatening to quit paying the note. Being the executor probably has no relevancy here.
We rented a home with a dock on the inlet for the sole purpose of fishing and water activities but when we arrived, the dock had been torn down and under construction. There is no access to the water due to the construction material along the entire inlet wall. No communication was made to us... Read more »
The short answer is probably yes. If a property is held out to you as including a dock, you have the right to be compensated if the amenity was not available to use. Of course, you will have to prove the difference in the value of the property with the amenity and without the amenity....Read more »
The home is a probate estate home, whereas the tenant is the son (Executor) and heir. The home was willed to the son, but he says that the mrtg lender told him he has no rights to the home because he is not on the deed. Is this true?
You need to hire a SC attorney to examine your Deed and perform a title search, basically to see if you are the owner. Have you paid taxes? Hopefully you will need to record the Deed and pay property taxes. Otherwise you may only have a claim under color of title.
what happens when you do a QuitClaim Deed of property over to a Private Common Law Irrevocable Ecclesiastic Trust? If the person’s name is on the recorded Deed as owner… meaning legal owner of the property, having a legal interest in the property referring to the right to possess or use... Read more »
A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. You could also consider discussing this with an insurance agent who has experience with commercial policies for these types of operations.

He’s become petty and hinting that he can have my name removed from the deed without my consent, though ownership is 50/50. I’d like to sever ties and he can afford the buyout. Also, he has the only deed in his possession. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you
Not sure of your question. But if there was a breach of warranties on the Warranty Deed, or some type of dislosure fraud, then a cause of action may exist. It is up to the buyer, now owner, to sue you. If there has not been a Deed executed yet, then read your Contract about each Parties'...Read more »
