Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
Can you tell me, is this agreement (between you and your son) in writing? If not, why not?
Thanks...Iahve some thoughts and will type them up...a few mins please...
THanks for your patienceNot putting this in writing was a big mistake.Under NV law, specifically the statute of frauds, the verbal agreement you had is void (you can not have a verbal agreement over title to real property...they are void as a matter of law)So there is no way to change title back
That said, you can consider filing an "unjust enrichment case" against your son to recover money you had to pay on his behalf to maintain the property...the law would allow you to sue for the money you had to pay for him to keep this property from being seized by the county for late taxes)Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can.

No...every state as the same rule....the CA statute of frauds will prevent your verbal agreement from being enforced...but you CAN sue in CA for unjust enrichment.
Sorry for the delay...I was called away.Even if he admits, it does not matter...the statute of frauds makes that agreement voidBut you can sue to recover the money you had to pay to keep the property from the tax man...that would be relatively easy to accomplish
