Hi Joe,

I agree with what Raymond has said. You can contact a local real estate attorney and check out what actions you need to take in order to challenge the deed.

Yes, it can be challenged ... what did his Will or Living Trust say? If he didn't have either of those, it can be challenged when his Estate is Probated.

In most states, there is a period of two years following the deed's filing date during which the quitclaim deed can be contested. If either the grantor or grantee wants to challenge the validity of the quitclaim deed, the challenge must be made during this time period. Otherwise, a statute of limitations will go into effect, and the deed's validity may no longer be contested. In California, the statute of limitations is five years. Any challenge to the quitclaim must be based on either a procedural error or on undo duress.
