If your mother did not own an interest in the house at the time of her passing, there is no interest in the house for your sibling to inherit.

Yes. However, a lot of documents are filed online and executed electronically these days, so original vs. copy may not make a lot of difference, but if he wants the very original ones, and his lawyer doesn't respond, he should be able to obtain a certified copy too.

Greetings: You should advise the attorney who represented you at closing as to what transpired; have he/she correspond with the Title Company and have them review the "ESCROW AGREEMENT" you signed at closing with respect to this violation.
I do not understand the question. You are in foreclosure. Your answer asserts defenses. If they are not sufficient, you will lose the case, and ultimately the judgment in the case will be to sell your house at a foreclosure auction. If you win the case, the house will stay yours.
I am not sure what you are asking. A notice of pendency goes with a lawsuit. You need to answer the lawsuit. A notice of pendency functions like a lien, which preserves the property for the result of the lawsuit. Until the lawsuit is dismissed, it will impact the sale of the property and likely...Read more »

You would need to ascertain who is the vested owner of the property by having a "last deed search" run. Once you are in receipt of the deed, this will reflect who is the "of record" owner of the property. If it is discovered that the land is currently owned by...Read more »
We are in the process of closing on a house. The seller would like to stay 7 days past the closing and pay for it. With Covid 19 what happens if she refuses to move out after the 7 days? Could we get stuck with her as a tenant and not be paid for her stay?
What you are referring to is called "post posession". This does NOT create a landlord/tenant relationship..whereby if the Seller stays beyond the 7 days...(their attorney should be holding money in escrow as an incentive for you to allow the post possession)..you will...Read more »
