Suppose one or more of the three heirs has created a forged signature, how does this affect the heirs selling an inherited car? 1 Answers as of May 05, 2015

After a succession is closed, can three heirs sell a car without the signature of the fourth heir, when the judge has already declared in the document of possession that all four heirs jointly own the inherited vehicle in equal shares? If it is legal, please simply explain the process or procedure for this to occur. If this is illegal, please explain what type of violation it is. Is it criminal, civil, civil rights, etc.?

If all four are owners of the car, all four must sign documents to sell the car. If one of the signatures is forged, the transfer is invalid. Forgery is a criminal offense.
