who was on title after this guy bought the house? Lets say it was him and the brother, then the brother only owned 1/2 of the property and could only give 1/2 to his ex-wife.
Who’s fiance is this and how is she in the picture? Is it the brother’s fiance? Since he no longer owns his 1/2, he could not give it to the fiance. Did the ex-wife give it to the fiance? Or did the brother think, that he could just give it over again (fraud) and gave a quitclaim deed to the fiance, even though he had already given his share over to the ex? If it was that way and the fiance then gave part of ‘her share’ to another woman, then that’s not valid, because she never owned part of the house, so, she had nothing to give.
What I would do is go to the courthouse and follow the title work back to before the purchase by this seller.
Find out how title was conveyed and who rightfully owns what.
Then I’d take it from there to decide how to proceed.
