If there are 3 grantees listed on a Warranty Deed in Oklahoma and one of the grantees obtains a loan against the property, would they need the permission/signatures of the other 2 grantees before doing anything with the property (undivided property)? And if the signatures were falsified, what legal... View More
If all 3 owners did not sign the loan, then it is very difficult for the lender to take the .property back in a foreclosure. If signatures were forged then the non borrowing owners can sue the lender and the other owner for fraud and to set aside the mortgage of record. The notaries can be...View More
Generally, a quitclaim deed conveys all of the interest of the grantor at the time of the conveyance. However, it all depends upon the actual terms of the deed. You will have to have the deed reviewed by an attorney.
19-865.51 through 19-869.7 are the statutes regarding zoning of county/city/lake planning/etc... With that said, counties and cities have some flexibility to set their own limits, in which you would have to check with the county commissioners in a county, or the city codes for a city.
Adjoining landowners are entitled to adjacent and subjacent support of their real property. But to prove this Tort will be difficult. Some type of engineer will be a necessary expert witness here.

Utility easements are often written into the legal description of the land. Additionally, even if not, but they have record of the utility easement and that can be proven (which from my experience they usually have their information together before doing any work) - then yes they can without...View More
I have text messages where he stated we would work out rent after the water and plumbing was fixed. Now he is refusing to move forward fixing problems till I pay two months rent that was not our agreement what grounds do I have to stand on?
Unless you have a written lease agreement the "grounds you have to stand on" are commonly called quicksand. In the absence of a written lease, your landlord can evict you at any time unless you continue to pay rent; withholding rent is a sure-fire way to get evicted.
I’m hoping to divide the land so people can rent it, thereby giving them an address in such state to establish residence. If they have a mailing address in which they then can get a drivers license in Oklahoma even though they don’t live at the address. Could a case of fraud be brought against... View More
Yes you can lease property that you own. Whether the folks that rent from you can establish residency within Oklahoma merely from leasing property is a different legal question. Residency is obtained by actually residing within the State of Oklahoma. That requirement is not met by merely leasing...View More
Two hotels on George Nigh expressway in McAlester. One is called Hi-way Inn Express, 1217 S George Nigh and the other is Super 8 motel, 1204 S George Nigh. Google maps indicates that the Super 8 is "permanently closed", but it is obviously not closed.
You can go the County Clerks office and look up the owner of the land that the motel is situated upon. If it is a corporation, then you would check with the Secretary of State of Oklahoma under that corporations name to see who the registered service agent of the corporation is and contact them.
You must check the land records to insure that the driveway the City is claiming to be an alley is indeed an alley or a part of your property.

I am on SS and have very limited funds. My mother left me the land she owned, 2 lots in Grant, OK. Handwritten will, land is all there is and value is maybe $2000 or less. Is there a way to get it switched over to my name without court, lawyers and such? I want to donate it in her name to our... View More
The answer to that question depends on which County you live in and the attorney you choose to represent you. Further, it could also be influenced by whom the defendants might be and the facts of the case. Generally, you probably are looking at a retainer fee of anywhere from $2000 and higher. The...View More
This is really simple. Just need the owners names, trustee names, name of the trust and date of creation, legal description and filing fees. Really inexpensive to have an Oklahoma compliant deed created by an attorney.

A landowner is to be paid "just compensation" by the government when the government takes the land by eminent domain. In the 10th Circuit (which includes Oklahoma), the determination is made by "market value." A lot of factors go into this, especially if only part of the...View More
