I bought a house in and I am from Canada. I had rents done

Hi there. I bought a house in Anderson and I am from Canada. I had rents done to it and one of my contractors has become a partner. To make things easier I thought transferring the house into his name would make things run smoother. So I have a signed contract with him that the house is still mine but we are using the house for equity in getting more financing to continue investing. He has now let the house fall apart and will not talk to me. He sent me a email back in last December saying he just needed my address to send me the quit claim deed and I have not heard from him since.What can I do, being from CanadaThank you.Owen

I bought a property and after escrow closed an occupant said

I bought a property and after escrow closed an occupant said he was 1/5 owner and he never signed a Grant Deed to his siblings. The notary lost his book. The signature on the grant deed does not come close to the signature on his drivers license or other documents. Is there any way to verify if the signature was from him or not?The property has one home and 2 adjacent lots. Would the court allow this person with the alleged forgery keep one of the APN's?In the case of a partisan what happens to the proceeds from the original purchase of the property? Do the sellers keep that money and they get paid again or would the title insurance get the 4/5ths amount of the money they paid and I would get the property?
