Hi there.Is a hard situation the one you got with her. You will need to probe that she pay nothing to get your deeds and that you did not give her for free... And that will become hard without probesSo, the way to manage, is try to get from her, some probesAs exemple, you could ask her for writting, your money waiting for an answerFrom the answer we could probe she recognices that she owes you the moneyThats the way I will do it if I were in your position.Once you got the probes, contract an atorney to sue her at courtBut before all, get the probes.José M spanish atorney

She will have nothing to do with me I can prove the no money was given for deeds as it was then family everything was verbal

The problem is that is you who has to probe the judge that she owes you the moneyAnd she she says that was for free, a gift, or whatever, you will have you case lostSo, you need to make sure that she recognice you that she owes you the moneyIf I write you asking you for money and you answer that you will pay when you can, you are recognicing that you oweme that moneyThats is my idea, my advice

The only proof I have is my son and his sons who know the truth of the matter would this be enough and can this be sorted out in an English court
Expert:  José M. replied 1 year ago.
Having witnesses is a good starting point but not enought. Try to get better probes to sue her, here in Spain or UKThank you
