Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Although typically in order for a gift of real estate to be considered completed, the recipient must accept the gift in the form of the deed, I have to opine that when you recorded the deed and daughter was aware of it and didn't object, then that would be conclusive proof a indirect acceptance.
So I hate to say it, but legally she would be considered the owner of the property because that is denoted by who is listed as the owner of record as determined by the latest properly executed deed..
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...
