Not sure of your question. Anyone can be the payee on a Note secured by a Deed of Trust. It appears that you may need the services of a competent TN attorney that will put it all together. You need an attorney that will represent you.
There was a lien filed against my survivorship interest in my Tenancy By The Entirety held home (with my spouse) over a judgment against only me. If we sell our home, does the survivorship interest lien go away since no one “died”, or does it have to be paid to clear the title even though it... Read more »
After doing Title Search, there is no heirs and the only person's name on the deed is deceased. Is the property unable to be sold until the estate of the deceased owner goes through probate? What are my options in order to purchase property?
You will need to hire an attorney to search the Title and determine Heirship. It may not be easy. A Tax Sale may be another way to obtain the tract. But again you will need a good lawyer. You are not going to be able to do this yourself.
Property in TN, both owners on the Deed are deceased. I was able to get in touch with Daughter (lives in KY) of the deceased. I want to purchase property from Daughter, will a Quit Claim Deed or Warranty Deed be needed? Or what is needed to purchase property from Daughter?
Hire a competent attorney to search the title, determine heirship and prepare a Deed. Warranty Deed can be used, but do you plan on suing the Seller? She might not want to give four covenants of title to property she has not had possession of. QCD is more likely her choice of conveyance.
Tenants In Common cannot adversely possess against each other. And paying taxes does not bestow special rights to one of the TIC's. Hire an attorney to search the title, determine heirship and prepare a Deed for the other Heirs to transfer their interests over to you if they will. If not, a...Read more »
I had a lien filed against me for a judgement against just me (not spouse). My home is held a Tenancy by The Entirety with spouse. The judgement holder tried to foreclose on my "survivorship interest", which went nowhere. Do I have to pay this to sell my house or is there some workaround?... Read more »
You interest could possibly be executed upon. Most buyers will not take your title however. Judgment Liens are good for ten years from date of Judgment, unless extended, which happens frequently. Even it the Lien lapses, it will still be in your title unless the creditor or a court removes it....Read more »
I do not understand that there is a lien in the deed language. Vendor's Liens have not been used for over 80 years. You are probably an heir if not the sole heir. If the sole heir, you also own the debt against your property, if it actually exists. Hire a competent attorney to search the...Read more »
There are various ways. The most straight forward is a Partition Action, for which you need to hire a competent attorney. But first you need an attorney to perform a title search and then look for the other owner or his possible heirs. Publication Notice and a Guardian Ad Litem might apply...Read more »
The father had 4 children. 2 are adults now, 1 other and mine are minors. At time of death the father was still paying child support. The sister n law has been given Administratrix over the estate.

It can be very difficult. There is a civil penalty Statute for failure to release a lien, but lapse of time is inapplicable. You can request the creditor to release or file suit to have the issuing Court declare it released. Slander of Title actions usually violate the SOL.

Your question cannot be answered without reviewing the will and understanding exactly what assets are in the estate and how much the decedent owed to creditors. As a general rule, real estate is not a probate asset in Tennessee, but that can be changed by will and also it can be drawn into a...Read more »

No, and very legal. You might be able to sue for a Declaratory Judgment that you have Water Rights by Prescription. But this will take time and money. You are trying to sell real property without title to everything that you represented you owned. It may be better to dig and plumb another...Read more »

Hire a competent attorney today, as you have went in way too far (and the seller knows you are good for alot more money). It appears the contract is already breached, and the seller intends to keep your investment into something you do not own. It is doubtful you will recoup anything. You...Read more »
With him at time of death. Can’t locate a Will. His girlfriend is making it seem like she doesn’t want me to look through anything or take anything. What rights do I have and she have? She still at his house.
Absent a will that leaves things to her, your dad's girlfriend has no rights. You need to hire a probate attorney right away to get a probate case started in order to transfer assets to your dad's heirs, his children. The court-appointed executor may also need to hire an eviction...Read more »
