Sorry to hear about your tough situation. I deal with a lot of properties like these over the last couple years and live and invest in Baltimore. I wanted to give you some more information for your financial planning. Some of these properties are not worth anything. It really depends on the size, condition, and location. Sometimes my clients buy near tenant ready properties for less than 8,000! So before you transfer it into your name make sure it is not a financial liability first as it is possible you could get stuck with bills rather than a check. If you need more advice let me know, I know the city well.
Ask for Paula. She always does a great job.
Hope this helps.
You want to contact a title company, they will transfer the property for you legally. I use Clearview Title they are located on north Charles Street.
Any other questions,
give me a call,

Contact a reputable title company. There is usually little to no cost for a family transfer. I recommend Homeland Title and Escrow at (410) 544-6700. Ask for Karen and let her know that Laura sent you!
Please note that if you are planning to sell it, you can do so while it is in her name and the sale will effect the transfer to the new owner at the time of settlement.
