The answer depends on the details. If it was a legitimate transfer for consideration the lender may have missed its opportunity to attach its lien to the property. However, if it was a transfer for the purpose of avoiding the creditor the court may allow the lien and void the transfer. Creditors are aware of this distinction and will petition the court to protect their rights.

No, the mortgage is a debt of the estate. That mortgage must be resolved before the property can be transferred.

That would mean a property owner who acquired their interest in the property by virtue of a deed.

A deeded piece of land is a property that has been signed over to you. It could either have been paid for or given to you as a gift.
