I own a 1.66 acre lot of land on the west side of Tucson. I bought it for $500. When I tried to go through a title company, they wanted the sign-off of the husband of the woman who she had divorced over 20 years ago. They spent 3 weeks searching for him, but never found him. SO, to get the sale through, we just did a quit-claim deed. I figured, for $500 the risk was worth it.
Now I need to get the title cleared. So, my question is, can anyone refer me to a good real estate lawyer in Arizona who can help me with this? I've talked to one who wanted to charge me $4000, which I think is just ridiculous. Surely this can be done substantially cheaper than that. Seems to me that a good paralegal could do the paperwork required. Can anyone help me out?
