Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
Yes it is very very sad situation.
This is a case of fraud and breach of contract
clearly, both names should have been on title
here it is inequitable for her to retain title
if she wont convey title, she may be taken to court
and the judge can order title transferred
on basis of equity, misrepesentations, and history of payments
It is best handled by local counsel
to expedite and try to reach a compromise
Yes the only problem is that he only has a couple of emails stating that he was going to be the buyer and nothing else in writing.
That is fine
the e-mails, history of payments and oral testimony are all relevant
OH my that is a revelation.
It is not a slam dunk
But it is a solid case
I wish you the best.
