That island is probably part of a larger tract titled in someone, who is probably paying taxes on it. Hire a competent attorney to search the title.

A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. If you are unable to consult with an attorney on this, a Georgia architect could possibly offer guidance about where to research building codes, fire safety codes, or other applicable statutory authority. Good luck...Read more »

What should I do to have it corrected and... Read more »
Unless there is an actual problem, I recommend that you do nothing. There are multiple ways to corroborate the documents to your property. For example property description, the rest of the address, your name, the seller's name, previous documents in the clerk's file with the correct zip code.
We discovered in 2016 our house was foreclosed back in 2011 by the bank that issued our builder's loan. This has robbed us access to our equity and the consideration upon signing the contract to begin with. We are still living in the house. Is the contract void? What are our rights?
Yes as both the Executor and her her attorney are probably entitled to administrative and fiduciary fees. You might object when the Court is moved to order payment of professional fees. Talk to your own lawyer about the Estate.
I don't like not giving advice when someone writes in and ask for it, but your questions are too complex to give a general answer to. A lawyer experienced in probate law needs to examine all the wills and the dates of death of all concerned to give you a firm answer as to who is entitled to...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney to search the title. You have not given the exact estate created, but all conditions, reverters, etc. cannot violate the Rule Against Perpetuities. You may have to file a Quiet Title/Declaratory Judgment action to clear the title for sale.

You probate a will only in the county where the deceased lived. Once you probate the will, the executor then transfers the real estate wherever it is in Georgia to the designated beneficiaries. Until that is done, the executor still has work to do.

Now my attorney is telling me I have to contact his siblings and their children inorder to GIFT the properties to whom... Read more »
It sounds as though you are working with an attorney. That person has all the details of your case, so it would probably be a good idea to take the person’s advice. If you don’t feel that you are getting good guidance with that attorney then you may want to see about working with a new one....Read more »
The attorney-in-fact is a fiduciary for his principal. Anything he does must be for the benefit of her. Conveying the property to himself is presumptively fraudulent. Family Members may wish to put her into a Conservatorship, or get a competent attorney to do some Estate Planning now by Deed.
^ kids are still a living but no one agrees to probate a will so she has been living there and paying taxes and taking care of the place since her mother died. She has always lived at the property and took care of her mother since the 70's
Not sure of your question. Wills mean nothing unless Probated. It is impossible for one tenant in common to adversely possess against the other tenants in common. But paying taxes exclusively gives her a right to reimbursement. You may wish to file a Partition Action.
