Do you have the original grant deed in your possession?
Do you have any other writing memorializing your original agreement?
Yes, I do have original grant did he filled out making me 49% owner. Other than that just witnesses to our agreement
The general rule of real estate is that the grantee (that's you) records the deed -- not the grantor. So, take the deed to the county clerk-recorder's office and record it. As long as no one has recorded a deed or mortgage in between the time that the deed was granted to you, there would be no difference, and your ownership interest will be confirmed by operation of law.Please let me know if my answer is helpful.
