In the state of Alabama, there are laws that address timber trespass and unauthorized timber removal. One such law is the Alabama Timber Trespass Law, which allows landowners to seek compensation for damages resulting from unauthorized timber cutting on their property.
If you own the land and your nephew wants to build a house on it, it is not necessarily true that your name has to be removed from the deeds. The ownership of the land can be structured in a way that allows your nephew to build the house while still maintaining your ownership rights.
If you are a tenant in common on the property, then yes, you can improve it. But then all TICs own the improved real property, and they might partition it or hold out on any sale until they are paid alot. I advise to hire an AL attorney to search the title, determine ownership, then see if other...View More

To really clear title, you will need an AL attorney to sue all subdivision owners in a Quiet Title Action. But first the attorney must carefully search that title. Any restrictions must be in your chain of title, not just someone else's.
Hire a competent attorney to determine Heirship and draft an Affidavit of Heirship and a Deed for the Heirs to convey. A Warranty Deed might help you, but a good lawyer looking at the title and boundaries now is what you really need.
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks.

It could be governed by common law doctrine, state law, or possibility municipal and...View More

My father put the land in mine and my brothers name years ago but kept the timber/mineral rights. He has cut timber many times. Now he wants to sell the land and we don't agree. Can he sell the timber/mineral rights to someone without our knowledge? WHat happens to the land then?
If the conveyance to you and your brother is enforceable, then his reserving timber and mineral rights will also be enforceable. That could involve the entire surface of the 120 acres. You apparently state that Father owns the fee in timber and minerals, but only a life estate in the property...View More

Your local realtor has no idea. A title search should disclose the present owner, who you might ask permission of to garden. Using the property is a trespass, but could develop into adverse possession. Checking the taxes might also disclose the opportunity for legal acquisition. Investing...View More
