Recent Decision In Warner v. Quicken Loans, Inc. Provides That Certain Third Parties Have Standing To Challenge Invalid Homestead Orders” by Jeffrey A. Baskies, Esq. and Allison S. Neumann, Esq.
Practitioners who represent third parties and wish to challenge the jurisdiction of the probate court as it relates to an invalid homestead order after the probate proceedings have concluded often find themselves prevented from mounting a successful challenge due to the third party’s lack of standing. However, the recent holding in Warner v. Quicken Loans, Inc. now provides such practitioners with a road map for successfully challenging an invalid homestead order – at least as it relates to a property held as tenants by the entireties.
