    What state are you in? How was your uncle's estate delt with?

    For starters, you could provide some relevant details, including the name of the state where the property is located.

    Sorry, it is in California.

    He passed away about 20 years ago and his name was never removed.

    My cousin inherited his 1/4 share.
    She now owns half. I own the other half,

    She is going quick claim her share to me, but I am concerned that it will not be done properly with his name still on it.

    First, you're going to need a copy of his death certificate. Unless your cousin was put on the title, a quit claim is just going to complicate things. It would behoove the two of you to consult with a probate/estate planning attorney for assistance.

    Thanks LegalWriter,

    I do have a copy of the death certificate.

    My cousins' work schedule would prohibit her from meeting with an attorney. Is it possible to get it done somehow without her being present? Maybe she can sign something and mail it in?

    Contact the lawyer. He will be able to provide documents that can be signed and notarized remotely.

    his name was never removed.
    Why not? Was his estate probated? If not, why not? If so, who was the executor/administrator of the estate?

    Most importantly, how did you and your uncle (and apparently your cousin as well) hold title? As tenants in common? As joint tenants? Something else?

    If his name is still on title, then I'm skeptical about the accuracy of this statement. If, in fact, she had inherited his share, then she would have received (and should have recorded) a deed from the executor/administrator of his estate that transferred his interest to her.

    FYI, the term is quitclaim, not "quick claim."
