Thanks for the responses and support. I have been intentionally vague in my posts, so it's no wonder there is some confusion. Overall, most have expertly read between the lines in assessing the situation. Eventually, I plan to explain more thoroughly. A couple things I do want to emphasize now....
The plaintiff alleges that DW recieved 100% of proceeds, but that is incorrect so we don't really have any connection to the sale.
- Despite the title I chose for this thread, this is not really an estate issue as far as the current allegations.
- It is my understanding also that title insurance would adequately protect against this type of problem, but how could you ensure that all future buyers purchase a policy? I have emphasized in other threads the importance of an owner's title insurance policy. Apparently this can be more difficult to obtain if a home has a history of foreclosure, but it is a must have (especially in light of all the real estate bubble shenanigans).
