Good morning. Do you have anything in writing? Was title placed in your name, when they gave it to you?

OK Thank you.

Nothing in writing I have the title but she did not sign it ..

Thank you. In a situation like this, you would need to show and support that they gave this to you and this was more than a situation whereby they allowed you to live there and the mortgage and taxes was not a form of rent. If she wants you out, she would need to evict you and you would need to defend this and show you are the owner of it and this was a gift and show proof of payments and everything that was done, over her contention that this was not a gift.

She has addmitted via text she was doing what she had to do for herself its her time now..If i get a text saying she gave it to me will that hold up in court?

Yes, that can be used as evidence, to show and support your argument. Not only do you want and need to defend the eviction but also show ownership interest and now get title to this and have it in your name and if she will not sign it over and cooperate, you need to sue her.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
