All my grandparent 's children, including my dad, are deceased. A distant cousin wishes to get rid of it and has been taking good care of the home.

Q: Can I be made to pay taxes on a home I wasn't in a lease for at the time taxes are from if lease says al taxes on buyer
My rent to own sales lease says all real estate taxes will be paid by buyer. I entered into the sales agreement 10/26/2016. I got a letter about 2016 taxes due, called the city tax people to see what taxes were accessed the home after 10/26/2016 so I could set up payment arrangements. They told me the seller has back taxes from 2014 in the amount of $6865.73, that needs paid first, before I can pay my 2016 taxes. I called seller and told him about back taxes and he says I am responsible for those back taxes because the sales agreement says all real estate taxes will be on the buyer. Seller will forward all copies to buyer for payment. I took this to mean ALL FUTURE TAXES, not his delinquent back taxes. I said I would not be paying those back taxes, and now he is threatening to throw me And my family out, because we won't pay his back taxes. Is thus legal? Do we really have to pay his back taxes from 2014 when we didn't enter into sales agreement until 10/26/2016?

Q: How do you remove someone of a house deed who has never paid for, or lived in the property in question?
My grandmother owns her home, but her daughter is on the deed. Has been for many years, and it is still unclear as to how she ended up on the deed. I would like some help on what steps we need to make to take her name off the deed.
