Question on Home ownership in MississippiI recently purchased a house from a friend on a rent to own basis. The house was in her deceased husband name when I started paying for it. Im finished paying for it now but since the house was still in her deceased husbands name she said that before she can sign the house over to me she has to show ownership for a certain amount of time. Im wondering if this is correct and how long does she have to show ownership? She is a real good friend and I dont think she would steer me wrong.January 08 2013 - Byram00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
