Customer Question

My dad was buying a building from his brother in April 1998. In October 1998, a big storm came through and because the roof wasn't fixed my dad lost everything inside. My Uncle gave my dad the building in lew of this. After my dad died, my uncle is now saying the building is his. The deed is in my sister's name. Is the building his or hers?
