A: If your father had title and made a completed gift to you, then you owned the property and your father cannot take it back. However, was there any paper work; any deed signed by your father? You have raised a lot of issues with your question. As a matter of law, you may own the property, but you need a real property lawyer to help you out. I recommend that you engage a lawyer who is knowledgeable as to real estate law in your state.
