She needs to talk to an attorney. But a lot may depend on how title is held.

Swaufor,

Your sister's interest will be protected as she is owns a certain percentage of the property. Her friend could not have decided alone as to whether he would give away his property to someone after death. At least he should have consulted your sister as she is a co-owner.

Your sister needs to find out if her friend has made any Will on his property, though that may not affect your sister as her name is already on the deed.

I was probably a little hasty in my previous response. I was thinking of probate issues, and whether the deed was filed and recorded, and things of that nature.

But Alex is correct, her interest should be protected if everything was handled properly.

Cool

My father passed away in 2006, his name my mothers name and myself are on the house deed. My father in his last two years was in hospice care with medi-Cal. Now Medi-cal is coming after our house for payment of services. How can I take my deceased father off the deed to avoid medi-cal from coming after the property?

Hi cynthia,

I don't think it is now possible to avoid medi-cal from coming after your house. Even if you remove him from the title, that would not be considered as valid and medi-cal can still place a lien on the property.

My mom passed away in 2002 and she left the house to me in her will. Her estate has already been to probate, but the house is not in my name yet. What type forms do I need to file to record the deed in NYC?

Hi mlb,

The property will have to be probated so you can get the title in your name. If you qualify for a refinance, you can do so to put your name on the mortgage. If the loan is assumable, you can also assume the loan and take over the responsibility of mortgage payments. However, if none of these options work, you can simply keep making the payments on time to retain the property.

In my opinion she must take advise from an attorney and specially take care about that because its a serious and legal matter.

To Yesenia,

Since your mother left the house to you in a will, the property will have to be probated. Once the probate process is complete, you will get the title in your name.
