You need a competent attorney to represent you, not a title bunch. Seller should have already run them out. If they claim ownership, then the deed will be champertous and void.

It is very possible to sue the Seller for a false Tennessee Residential Real Estate Disclosure. But you must have some damages and file within a year (I believe). Even then you need to think about whether you can collect. It helps if the realtor also signed it.

Medical Providers will have to get a Judgment prior to a Lien except on a related personal injury/wrongful death suit. The will has no effect without probate, and probate would not be a good idea.

What is it that you want to do?...And the contractor can not make you pay for what is probably a road widening approved by the County Commission.

You are right to be scared. Do not do this without the assistance of an attorney. In addition, do not do this without the assurance of title insurance. An attorney or a title insurance company can tell you what steps will be required in order for you to obtain clear title in your particular case.
He could easily have a $ 25K or more Homstead Exemption. It may be titled as a Tenancy By The Entirety, or a Tenancy In Common or even a LIfe Estate/ Remainder. It could have a Deed of Trust against it, or there maybe several Judgment Liens ahead of your potential Lien. Hire a competent...Read more »
It is not a legal requirement. But if you want that outfit to loan you money, then you have to abide by their rules. You apparently are the fee simple owner, but they probably want the husband own the title, and most certainly the Deed of Trust, to expedite a potential Foreclosure due to...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search, then draft, execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. That will be your source of Title, then you are able to execute a deed as the grantor, with the Affidavit shown in the Derivation of Title Clause.
Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search, then draft, execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. If there are Liens, then they must be addressed, or you might not own the real property very long. Any money owed would be against the property, not you personally.
He left for a work trip at the start of the month and while he was gone, I finally decided to leave him. He comes back Saturday, but I don't want him in my house unless I'm here and I want my house key. He is on the lease, and he is planning to pack his stuff and leave, but wants to do it on a day...

You would have to secure a court order preventing him from entering a premises for which he has a lease. I suggest you quickly consult with an experienced local family law attorney to get the best options for your particular case.
You probably will have to sue his Estate, if there is one. There is probably a large problem here. There is also a Real Estate Education Trust Fund to notify upon institution of Suit. You cannot sue the Insurance Co. directly.

Not to my knowledge. If there is a relevant clause in the Real Estate Sale Contract, then that term on current utilities controls. But no Tennessee Statute applies. Possibly some county ordinance or city code requires it. Who would enforce it?
