A: If you mediated, you may have already agreed to the transfer. Hire an attorney to search the title and and see if there is an action to set aside the transfer for fraud. But 3 year SOL has run and the trustee is the one that has standing. If sister is trustee, it is presumptively fraudulent. The SOL may bar suit but you it might be tolled for fraud. It appears that you may have waited too long to act.
