Nice to meet you. My name is***** want to try to help you with your situation.
Did you quitclaim deed the property to Norval? Was there anything in writing (any kind of contract, etc.) that defined the terms of you doing so?
Please advise so I can assist you.
There are situations in which verbal contracts are binding. However, they are very difficult to prove.
Your only remedy here would be to sue Norval for breach of a verbal contract. You're going to need to prove the existence of the verbal contract as well as establish the terms of the contract. This can be done through witness testimony.
Please keep in mind that verbal contracts are very difficult to prove and they are not recognized by every state.
