Legal Question

Asked on: 6/07/10, 3:36 pm

To whom it may concern:

My father passed away in December 2009, at 49 years old, due to complications from lung cancer. Unknown to me at the time, his father wrote up a will and had him sign it the morning that they took him off life support. In this will it leaves me, a 19-year-old student, a house with ~$170,000.00 debt on it.

I found out today that they (my grandfather) transferred the deed to the house into my name without ever notifying me of it. Is it legal to sign something over to someone without their knowledge? And, more importantly, how do I go about contesting this will that I believe to be contrived and illegitimate?

Thank you for your time,

Erin B. Smith
