Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
I am afraid that I don't have very good news, so please don't "shoot the messenger". When wife quitclaimed over the house to the investor, she gave up all ownership of it to the investor. So it is then his house to do what he wants and maintain however he chooses to. Then if wife accepted a quitclaim deed back for the property, she would have accepted it in the present condition it was in so she wouldn't have any legal grounds to go after the investor for damages.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy. I don't want to see you spend a bunch of money on an attorney trying to pursue something that won't result in a win for you...
