I agree with my colleague. You indicated that you bought the house, meaning you gave consideration for it. Additionally seller also signed a deed indicating acceptance of consideration received. it is not clear why you have held on to the deed without recording it as the public will not consider you a legal owner until the deed is recorded. That said, I do not know the details of your agreement with seller, but since seller received consideration, I would not advise you to give title back but would advise that you record the deed immediately to confirm your ownership.Ask a similar question
