The Defendant in a quiet title claim needs assistance defending her right to the home she has lived in for over ten years. Plaintiff and Defendant started a relationship together in 2003. In 2011, Plaintiff won a wrongful death lawsuit for $14.1 million dollars. He offered to pay off Defendant’s house in a short sale transaction and payed $40K and title was transferred into his name. The parties’ relationship ended in 2011, and Defendant asked to have title transferred back into her name before Plaintiff moved away. On or about 02/03/2012, the parties engaged counsel to prepare and execute a quitclaim deed transferring title of the property back into Defendant’s name but she did not record it at that time. After they separated, they remained in contact and Plaintiff began talking about selling the property and that the property belongs to him. As a result, Defendant found the quitclaim deed that was executed in 2012 and recorded the deed on 11/13/2019. The Plaintiff now alleges the deed was fraudulent and he filed a Complaint for Quiet Title on 3/21/2021 and filed an Answer on 3/23/2021. Plaintiff is represented by counsel. Plaintiff claims that the Defendant improperly and fraudulently recorded a deed naming her owner to the property in question but Defendant vehemently denies this and has the records.
