Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to Answer your question
You stated that you had transferred title to the property to your son. If you did not receive any consideration (money or money's worth), then when you signed a deed which transferred title to your son, the gift was complete. Once a gift is complete, title vests in the grantee which, in this case was your son. At that point in time, the lender could have called in the entire mortgage
loan because loan documents almost always contain a "Due on Sale" clause which means that if the property is transferred, then the entire amount of the loan becomes due and payable.
Once you transferred title to your son, the gift was complete. Had you and your son signed an Agreement that he would continue to have title to the property as long as he made the monthly payments which were due on the loan, then this transaction and gift would be "Executory" and not a completed gift. But, since no Agreement was signed by you and your son, the gift was complete when you signed the Deed over to your son and at which time he became the owner of the property, and I cannot see any legal basis for the Court to either Order the property sold, or have the property transferred back to you. If you had transferred title to your son, but kept your name on the title, that would have given you some room to maneuver. However, as it stands now, and from your facts, your son is the sole owner of the property and the only person who can decide what to do with the property.
The only avenue available to you is to buy the property and then trun around and sell it. Unfortunately, when the opportunity arises for you to buy the property, your son will have already defaulted on the Note and that reflects on your credit standing.
From the facts you have stated, there are no grounds on which you can take your son to Court and any lawyer that tells you otherwise will be lying to you and would only be looking to take your money, but deliver nothing in return.
Your only possible remedy is to ask your son what he wants, or what he is looking for to transfer the title back to you. If anybody tells you that you can force your son to transfer title back to you, they are lying to you. You made a gift of the house to your son. The gift was complete. A Grantor (the person making the gift) cannot demand the return of the gift.
