Quit Claim Deed

Posted on: 09th Jan, 2007 03:00 pm
We have an aunt who has signed a deed over to her sister. Our aunt is basically on her death bed. What we are worried about is if the deed superceeds the will she has, which gives the contents of her townhouse to us as well as some money and accounts left to only us.

Thanks for your Help.
Hi HB and J,

Welcome to Mortgagefit forum.

If the deed was made out with the help of an attorney and properly notarized and recorded then it would have legal applicability.

You will have to prove that the while making the deed your aunt was not in a mental state to take decision on her own and the deed cannot be considered as valid.

Hi HB and J,

It's sad to hear about your aunt's illness. May God give you the strength to overcome the situation.

The Will is effective after a person passes away, no matter whatever deed the person signs over to someone else.

The deed cannot supercede the Will. As such, after your aunt passes away, you will be able to get the contents of the townhouse. Still you may contact an attorney for further opinion.

Thanks,

Sara
