Hello. I am trying to find a possible direction to go in for this particular situation, although it is for my dear friend. My friend, who is now 70 years old, had her house 'stolen'. Several years ago, she used to own a home in Tempe, AZ and had her friend stay there in order to help her. My friend is legally blind and one day her friend told her she needed some paperwork signed for proof that she lived there. My friend, being so helpful, agreed to help her with this paperwork. However, she cannot see very well, so she trusted in what she was signing and when it was all over, the friend and her spouse 'legally' owned the house. Since then she has been afraid and does not know how she would even go about fighting for her property. She was clearly taken advantage of.
Does anyone know how this could have happened in the first place?... I was not told the full details. Who could she turn to and what would she do to prove that she signed under false intent? Any other *comments would be helpful. Thanks/
