Can A Family Member with 50% Ownership Transfer Property Without My Knowledge?

As there are many different Deed structures, the original deed must be carefully examined to determine the authority available to transfer the property.

The new deed should also be examined to determine how the property was transferred, by seeing how the grantor was listed.

All deeds which transfer property must be recorded with the county recorder or register of deeds to be effective.  Copies of filed deeds are available for public inspection (either on-line or in person at the recorder’s office).
