In the Daily Journal article, “If it’s not in writing, does it exist,” Hoge Fenton Attorneys Denise E. Chambliss and Ariel G. Siner examine the McMillian v. Eare dispute regarding the ownership of two real estate parcels. A wife, her husband, and the husband’s mother are the parties in conflict. What began as a tense breakup over community property and third-party interests in the two real estate properties turned into a civil complaint and cross-complaint, both trying to clear the title to the two properties. Numerous notarized grant documents issued by individuals transferring titles to one another further caused confusion.
