Thank you for your additional information, Chancy, I understand how you feel and how you were thinking at the time you put her name on the Deed,
Please understand that I have researched your question and I am giving you an honest and accurate Answer under the Laws of West Virginia so that you can take the appropriate steps to protect your property rights.
When an individual places the name of another individual on a deed, he can remove the Grantee's name from the deed, if the Grantor does so before he records the deed. Once the Deed has been recorded, the Grantor cannot remove the name of the other party.
However, there are some exceptions; if you were so overwrought with worry about your failing health and you basically were not thinking rationally, or thinking things through, then under the law, you did not have the mental capacity to execute the deed and give away your property to someone who was not even a blood relative. Compounding the problem was the fact that she was your caretaker at this crucial time in your life and she exercised unreasonable influence over you and over you actions, so that when you would take any action, you were really doing what she wanted you to do.
You might have to return to West Virginia briefly because this might only be accomplished by Court Order and the Judge may want to speak to you. But, we do not know that right now, so let us not start worrying about a possible, brief trip to West Virginia. You should not attempt to do this by yourself and should retain an Attorney in the County in West Virginia where the property is located. If you know a local Attorney who can accomplish this for you that would be great. If not, you can call the West Virginia Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service, tell them what your situation is and ask the names of several Attorneys with experience in real estate transactions. It will not cost much and it is certainly worth it to have it done correctly. The Attorney will take care of the legalities, and then everything will be the way you want it and back to normal, and the Deed will be back in your name and recorded in the Recorder of Deeds Office in the County where the property is located,
I realize that this is not exactly the Answer you were hoping for and you would have wanted something a bit faster, and it would have been my pleasure to give you the Answer you were hoping for, but I have an ethical obligation to you to give you only correct Answers and information, so I am respectfully asking that you not hold West Virginia law and the extra steps you might have to take in order to accomplish your goal against me,
