My wife and I received our home from my wife's Grandmother and Mother on Dec.2001. It's our first home. Before title transfer, we wanted to preserve the pre-Proposition 13 tax status, by filing a Proposition 58. This was later denied because the GrandMother and Mother were in ''Joint Tenancy''. The Assessor's office is telling us that we can file a ''Correction Deed'' to revert everything back. Afterwards, everything would need to be transfered the correct way. To make matters worse, the Mother passed away in April of 2002.
Should I raise my hands in frustration and give up? I've tried over the last year to find an Attorney experienced with this type of correction.. but haven't been able to find any. After a whole year of this.. I'm quite lost on what to do.
Any suggestions? Thank you so much for your help.
