Hire a competent WV attorney. Move for a default judgment for the relief you want. With real property it should be very precise. If the title is involved, a certified copy of the judgment should be recorded with land records.

If the property goes through his Estate, then it has a cloud on the Title. No reasonable purchaser would want such title, but they might buy it cheap and get a Quit Claim Deed. If she is the executrix, it might be grounds to remove her.

Read your Contract and see if it prohibits assigning your rights under the Contract. More than likely all you can do is leave it... Read more »

Real Property is usually conveyed by executing and delivering a Deed, as it is a Contract.
An agreement to sell is only equitable conversion, which can be enforced by a specific performance suit. If no Deed, title has not transferred, but the Contract can probably be sued upon. The... Read more »

Does power of attorney, which was obtained before the conservator ship, allow me to sell this property?
answered on May 5, 2021

I am the remainderman of a life estate. I'm trying to recover the taxes that I paid for the life estate holder.
answered on Aug 12, 2020
You will need to hire an attorney to see if there is a cause of action against the life tenant for contribution. But the taxes are against the land which both of you own. So either of you must pay the taxes or you lose the land. Probably the only way to recover your paid in taxes is a Petition... Read more »
