Hire a competent attorney to search the title, determine what exact type of conveyance it is, then draft a Quit Claim Deed for all the...Read more »

I don't practice Texas law, however, you probably can't get a commission legally because you need to be licensed either as a real estate agent or broker. You could look into whether it is permissible to receive a finders fee in Texas: https://legalbeagle.com/8579336-texas-finders-fee-laws.html
