Ownership with No Deed

If your relative owned real estate and there is no deed that can be located, consider the following options:

  • The relative inherited the property and the deed of acquisition is the will where it was bequeathed or the intestate probate of the deceased owner they were an heir to.
  • The deed of purchase was not recorded. While it’s not too common, it is possible.
  • Consider that your relative never actually owned real property.
