Good day , I had my sister sign an agreement at my our mothers

Resolved Question:

Good day , I had my sister sign an agreement at my our mothers death bed , witnessed by the Head Doctor caring to her to obligate to the facts about ownership of the house and how she transferred the house to her name whilst I reside abroad and the facts that she
done without my mother knowing or advising me or my brother, as my mother doesn't read or write or understand any legalities, the house was put in Mothers name by my father upon there divorce. I also included that she transferred illegally and must give me 50% percent upon signature, and acknowledge her actions. My Question is what should I do whilst I only have this 1 page signature from her should I have a lawyer write to her demanding another legal paper or confession, she ( sister ) suffers from OCD in a extreme matter and now become a Narcissist and impossible to talk to, what should I do ?

No solicitor


80's

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for your reply.

As your sister has signed this agreement, you should certainly instruct a local Solicitor to contact her as regards ***** ***** she transfers 50% of the property to you.

On its own, the agreement is not sufficient on its own to transfer 50% of the property to you;- your Solicitor will need to prepare a Land Registry Transfer document which your sister will need to sign.

If she transferred the property without your Mother's knowledge, she is guilty of fraud which is a criminal offence. No doubt your Solicitor can advise her of this fact.

Alternatively, you can speak to her, inform her you have taken legal advice, and get her confirmation that she will sign the Land Registry Transfer document, before you then go and instruct a Solicitor to deal with the formalities.

I hope this assists you and sets out the legal position to you.

Kind Regards

For Aston Lawyer, As I've explained I need to know if this signed paper done at my mothers bedside & witnessed is of NO VALUE ???


As I can't talk to her , I have no Solicitor . I need a letter sent to her ?


As for being a crime in the 80's is it still something that become in a court of criminal Law ??

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Hello,

Yes, it would be advisable for you to appoint a solicitor to write to your sister and refer to the letter which your sister signed and get her to transfer 50% of the property to you if that is what your mother wished should happen.

You need evidence to show that your mother intended you to have 50% of the property e.g. Her Will.

May I help further?

Aston Lawyer, Hi, Al, yes I understand I need a Solicitor, I'm on my ill bed,


with serious medical health issues, so I don't have a solicitor, my mother never had a will & my sister was allowed to care for her exclusively, as she has no family or kids or husband, why can I not go to police station and report if its a criminal act, and she has made no will either , part of her Narcissist, is there nothing I can do without any fear my signed paper will not be recognised if she dies, so, she has no will, she dies , what does my paper mean towards my ownership rights, Pls help tell me, Nicolas


 

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
I am sorry but the police will not be interested as this is a civil matter unless you can show them evidence that your sister committed fraud.

If your mother never made a Will, you will need to go to court to get an order in your favour for the 50%, if your sister refuses to transfer this to you.

I am afraid this is an online forum, not a law firm where we can act for clients. You really need to see a face to face solicitor to take your case on.

All the best

Aston Lawyer, Hi Al, I'm very confused by the controversial remarks as to one time this is Criminal & next that the police would not be interested because its civil, please look at your comments ( answers ),


Thanks,


Nicolas

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
You may raise the matter with the police and see what they have to say.

In my opinion, they will not be interested if there is no proof of any fraud.
