If you sign a quickclaim deed over to someone for $1.00 and the property is transferred to their namebut themoney is not paid, can the transfer be set aside?

Once a deed is recorded for property with a county's recorder's office be it a quit claim or a grant deed, the presumption is that adequate consideration was given fo the recording and transfer of title from one person to another.

Title was placed in your daughter's name of a piece of property by way of nominal consideration of one dollar. She is the presumed owner and consideration for the transfer was presumably given before the quit claim was recorded.

If you want legal title to the property back in your name, your daughter needs to either sign a grant deed or quit claim deed of the property given to her by you back to you and have it recorded in the county recorder where the property is located.
