I think there is something missing from the facts you give. Were there any other liens superior to that of the finance company? If the “heir” did not inherit anything, why is the title company listing him? You should have your parents ask for a copy of the decree of distribution by which the “heir’s” sister obtained the property. Perhaps there is something in it which gives the “heir” some right. I would also contact the attorney for the mother’s estate to find out if and why the “heir” has a claim to the real estate.
