My son is trying to get a piece of property from his cousin. The property is in my niece's name (who is deceased). His cousin is the only living heir to the property. There are back taxes owed on the property, but my son will agree to pay the taxes. His cousin has agreed to sign the property over to my son. We just need help finding what paperwork we need to do this legally in Texas.

Hi Jlamey,

When the cousin has already agreed to transfer the property to your son, then in that case, he will have to sign over a quitclaim deed to your son as grantee to the property. After signing, the deed will have to be notarized and recorded at the office of the County Recorder. In this way, the deed will be valid. And after getting over the property rights, your son will have to bear the responsibilities of paying off the taxes.

If the property hasn't yet been transferred over in cousin's name then first it will have to be transferred in his name. And then he would be able to transfer the ownership rights to your son.

And after cousin has ownership of this property he can use a quit claim deed to transfer it in your son's name. I would advice that in this property transfer process you take help of an attorney to be sure that no legal procedure is missed and your son receives complete ownership of property.

My Mother died in 1998. She left one and half acres with a small house on it in Smith County. Texas. My brother has been paying the taxes. How can he transfer the deed to his name?

Hi clifford johnson,

Welcome to the forum.

Have not your mother leave any will for you. In that case I think you should do a title search and then transfer the title on your name and your brother's name.

Contact an attorney. He will help you to transfer the title.

Best of luck,
Larry.

should I contact a real estate attorney to have a deed tranferred from a deceased family member of property that still have a mortgage. How difficult is that? and does it matter if there is no will? Bear in mind I am paying the mortgage on the property in the state of NC

Welcome,

As there is no will and the family member is deceased, you cannot use a quitclaim deed to transfer the property in your name. You will have to file for an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office.

Hi Eric,

Since he is the co-owner, he can submit the death certificate of the deceased owner with the county recorder's office and ask them to issue a deed solely in his name. Once he gets the ownership of the property he will be liable to pay the taxes owed on the property.

Mom died in Jan. She had no will, she has her mobile home, which is uninhabitable, on my husband's property. She lived there rent free for 20+ years. How do we sell our land with the mobile home, no one in the family can afford to have it moved

Hi

I believe the title of the property is in you and your husband's name. In that case, you can file an afidavit of heirship with county recorders office and get the title from your mother's name to you and your husband's name and sell off the property.
