This could potentially be a title problem because of the way this was done and you should definitely contact a real estate attorney. Just because someone pays the property taxes they do not have the right to own the property.

Usually paying taxes does not make you the owner of the property. I would contact a lawyer right away to get to the bottom of this. I am sorry that you are having to go through all this after losing your grandmother. :(

Hi Tiffany, I think your best advice would be to seek the counsel of an attorney in the county in which the property is located. As a realtor, legal issues like this are out of our jurisdiction of practice. Good luck! Sharon
