This is too serious to be handled online.

ASAP, your father needs to consult with an experienced local real estate attorney to see if he can challenge the transfer based upon a number of defenses. If your father knew he was transferring the property to the nephew, but is now having second thoughts about it, he may just be out of luck. Again, seek the advice of a real estate attorney to obtain guidance on what do do next.

Property title and elder/advanced life decisions, including transfers through a Last Will and Testament, should be properly certified to effect the intentions of your father. There may be other extenuating matters concerning his ability to obtain health care. I can meet with you and your father to discuss and advise on the various matters. Contact me should you need assistance.
