Contested Deed Transfers

New York City Attorneys: Contested Deed Transfers

Estate planning is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. A well-drafted will or other estate planning tool lets you plan who will inherit what and under what terms and conditions. If you die without a will or intestate, New York State law will direct who will inherit your property, cars or other valuables.

Most times the transfer of property goes very smoothly. The will writer makes a sound judgment, specifies who will inherit the family home and the will is properly and duly witnessed. After the decedent has passed away, the terms of the property transfer are honored in one of many types of deed transfer.

Contesting a Deed Transfer

The deed transfer can be contested if an interested party feels the transfer is not fair. If that happens, call the experienced estate planning and real estate attorneys at Connors And Sullivan Attorneys At Law, PLLC in New York City without delay. The sooner we get started, the sooner we can address the contested deed transfer through real estate litigation for the most positive outcome possible.

The Battle over a Contested Will

There are a number of grounds for contesting a will, including:

  • The will signature is fraudulent: the will writer thought he or she was signing some other document and did not realize the will was being changed.
  • The will was not properly witnessed
  • The will writer was unduly influenced by someone who stood to gain an inheritance, for example, a caregiver
  • The will writer didn't understand what he or she was signing, that is, he or she lacked testamentary capacity
