Did the executor, caretaker, lawyer steal my aunt's Jamaican property through fraud?Published Aug 13, 2012
QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
I would love to know what is going on with my aunt's property in Jamaica, and if possible get my name on it. My aunt died shortly after she bought property and built up a house. She and her husband had no children, so they adopted me and raised me. My aunt's husband with a lawyer, went to probate court and replaced her name with his name only on the title after she died. After the funeral of my uncle-in-law, some guy phoned and said he was the executor and that my name was being removed from the will of my uncle-in-law. last year I came to Jamaica and saw only my uncle-in-law's name on the title and when I went to the house a lady there told me she took care of him till his death and she has a will with two executors listing her as new owner. I really think there was some fraudulent action and I need the title reflecting my name. the difficulty is neither the lawyer who had the original will, the executor, nor this woman can show me any of the wills, or it seems they are refusing to.
RESPONSE: Dear Vera

I wish you luck lady. Is land, and dead man tell no tale. This is regular happening. Unless you get land before the owner dies and your name is placed on the title, and you keep it in your possession you may come back and somebody else own it. once you not there those around will do what they have to do to get the property even that lady who probably got paid to be a care taker or saw that there was an opportunity and moved in. You are no exception. Them thief. Even the lawyers you have to watch.
