Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
In what state? How was the property titled, was it joint tenants with right of survivorship?
Was there any will?
Chances are after all these years you will not get it back, you may be lucky to get money out of your dad and will have to sue him to do so if he violated the law and improperly sold the land, so you need to be willing to do that.
