My father passed, his will gave all to his wife (not my mother). She passed 3 months later. I was named in the will as beneficiary if her death preceeded my fathers'. A family member insists that the rights to the property reverts back to me because it is a titled property, not a deeded property. Is this correct? The property is in South Carolina, I live in North carolina. I am being asked to sign a renunciation of rights for the family member, can I do that?

You need to speak to an estates attorney because w don't have enough facts here. Was the property titled to you? if not, then the property being titled is irrelevant to your question.
