Unless she actually signed the deed in front of a notary you will have to hire a lawyer to do an action to quiet title.

Your matter was filed under consumer protection. This is actually a real estate issue. I am sure one of the attorneys in this forum can answer your question. However, it is likely that you are going to have to file some sort of quite title action. However, it sounds like you would qualify under the law of Adverse possession here in PA.
