I just would like to get my land back now. No improvements, it’s basically abandoned. What can I do to get title into my name?
ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:
The debt owed to your mother is now owned by your mother’s estate. You will need to consult with a Florida litigation attorney. (I am assuming it was Florida land.) You may have to open a probate for your mother to file the lawsuit. Hopefully your mother had the agreement in writing. Also, be aware of the statute of limitations. If you wait too long, you will be barred from bringing a lawsuit.
