What type of form can be used to correct a probate deed and add specific property interest? Me and 3 siblings inherit a property from our father in 2016, we have equal interest on 12.5 acres and the improvements. There are 2 residences on the property of which I am 100% owner of one, which I built, however my father did not update his will to indicate this fact. I applied for the TX homestead exemption and the appraisal district informed I only qualify for a 25% since deed does not specify I am 100% owner of the said home and therefore it is presumed we each have a 25% interest. My 3 siblings do not live on this property and they acknowledge that the home I built on this property is 100% mine to include 1/2 acre where the home is built on. Their 25% interest is only on the other home to include the land. By filling an updated deed with the fact that I own the home 100% and live in it as my primary home the appraisal tax office will then qualify me for the full exemption.
Because we are not a law firm, we cannot give legal advice about a specific situation. But the following quote from our discussion of quitclaim deeds should address your question:
A quitclaim deed can also be used to transfer inherited property among heirs. Say, for example, that three children inherit property from their mother, but only one child wants the property. To transfer the inherited property to the child that wants the property, all three children could sign a quitclaim deed. All three children would sign as current owners and the child that wants to keep the property would be listed at the current owner. This would effectively transfer the property from all three children to the child that will keep the property.
