    Whose name was the quit claim changed to all your names or just sis's? If mom changed the deed to all your names or even one of them she no longer owns the property to do anything with. If in all four names you are pretty much out of luck unless out to the goodness of their hearts the others give up their OWNERSHIP to you, again Mom is out of the chain of ownership. I am not so sure you know what is going on and if you are using the correct terminology so see an Atty and find out first, how the house is now deeded and if sis has her name ONLY on the deed then the rest of you are out of luck!

    • If the Quit claim deed has been filed and recoded with the county clerk, then answer is no, without the approval of all who are on the deed

    • You post is unclear as who quit claimed what. But no, you cannot undo a 20-year old quit claim deed that has been duly recorded.

    • Record a grant deed putting the proper people back in title and quitclaim the others off title.

    • I know this one. A quit claim deed is a document which prevents the person to claim the property. It is a legal document. However, if she wants to contest and say when she signed the document, she was not capable mentally, she can appeal in court. That would take a lot of money. Chances are, she is not going to do that. One thing which is more important that anything else is the family relationship. If it is salvageable, I suggest that everyone comes to term to accept whatever mom wanted her kids to have.
