My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Ca
My mother's husband passsed away unexpectedly this year leaving no will to his home. Two months later, my mother received a UD case stating that she is being sued for unlawfully staying in that house. The title of the house is under the husband and his only brother, but the brother had an agreement with the husband and signed a quit claim. The quit claim wasn't registered and recorded when he passed away and a previous attempt was made by the brother's attorney to transfer title back to him through an affidavit of death but wasn't able to because they didn't have a death certificate. The quit claim is now recorded, but records in the assesor's office still indicate the tax bill sent to the brother's address made by the previous recording before we recorded the quit claim. My question is what can my mother do knowing she has full right to the property along with the UD case that's set for a later date. Thanks to ones for their input and expertise.
