I need to see a copy of the original Deed, as it may explain your rights, or lack of them. Depending on how the original title reads, the niece may be correct. For example, if the original Deed named the 3 owners as owners with "rights of survivorship" and the neice's parent was the last to die, she may be correct. The original Deed registration determines this.
