In some instances, a person may have a legal problem because the previous owner did not properly transfer ownership of a piece of land or a house to them. In these cases, a quiet title lawsuit can be filed to resolve the problem. This is done by determining who actually owns the property. If someone has paid the taxes and has maintained the property, they will usually own the property. A quiet title action involves the use of a court order to find out the true owner of the property. These actions can be either judicial or non-judicial. Non-judicial actions are also known as constructive actions because they do not require a court order.
Affidavit of Death or Heirship
Sometimes, your relatives will die without leaving a will. In those cases, you can use the “affidavit of heirship” to prove that you should inherit certain assets. This includes having a title search for your real estate, which Seda Law can do and provide you with a copy of the search. This will help you to check whether your relatives have left any property behind. You may also need to have an affidavit of heirship prepared. To prepare the affidavit, you will need to gather the information about your relatives’ death, fill out the required information and make sure that your relatives have died without a will.
