Hi, you may want to reword your question. If you are asking why your deceased parents put property in someone's name, no one can really answer that.

Any Partition Action will be subject to the Tax Sale, which should have been part of the Partition Sale Order. Apparently the Partition Action is incomplete and erroneous. High tax bidder will ignore the Partition action.

There are several ways to do this and MANY wrong ways.

A Quit claim deed is one but you need to appropriately record transfer affidavits and report the gift properly. There probably won’t be tax due but depending on how you structure things a return may be due. The rules are complicated...
