real estate


Question by  Vijayakumar (17)

What happens when the names on the deed are not the same names listed when a property has been inherited and is being sold?


Answer by  mamaItaliano (76)

The deed may still be in the name of the deceased, and a death certificate and probate information will be included as the property is sold, and a new deed will be issued. This is very common.

In this instance a title company will require some form of proof that the property has been inherited. This could be court paperwork or a copy of a will. In certain instances if no will was left than only documenttaion from a Superior Court will suffice as proof for teh title company

If the house was inherited by a child or spouse of the deed owners, it can be sold if there is proof of ownership. Otherwise, the sale isn't legal.

You need to correct the names on the deed if you have truly inherited this piece of property. It should not be complex if you have the paper work.
