Plaintiff assigns error to the order granting summary judgment for defendants, contending that there exist “genuine issues of material fact as to the intentions and motives of the parties.”
[EJxcept in cases of fraud, mistake or undue influence, a parol trust, to arise by reason of the contract or agreement of the parties thereto, will not be set up or engrafted in favor of the grantor upon a written deed conveying to the grantee the absolute title, and giving clear indication on the face of the instrument that such a title was intended to pass.
Plaintiff contends that the holding in Gaylord does not bar her claims against defendants because “[t]he situation reflected by record raises a question of fraud or undue influence.” Plaintiff’s argument relies heavily on Ferguson v. Ferguson, 55 N.C. App. 341, 285 S.E. 2d 288, disc. rev. denied, 306 N.C. 383, 294 S.E. 2d 207 (1982), in which this Court upheld the denial of the *160defendants’ motion for summary judgment on. fact's similar to those of the instant case. In Ferguson the plaintiff alleged that her son “agreed to put the . . . land in his name and hold it for Plaintiff, so she would qualify for government aid during a serious illness and so her property would be preserved for all of her children.” Plaintiff subsequently conveyed the property to her son and his wife, the defendants. Defendants furnished no consideration for the conveyance. Plaintiffs complaint alleged that defendants procured title by misrepresentation and fraudulent statements of intent. On these facts this Court said:
[I]f defendants in this case made a promissory representation, intending at that time not to comply with the promise but rather to induce the plaintiff to act, such misrepresentation is fraudulent and will support the imposition of a constructive trust. ... In this case, plaintiff clearly alleged that there existed an oral agreement between the parties prior to the legal conveyance of the land and further alleged that the defendants made promissory representations merely to mislead her while having no intention of complying with their promises .... In this case, the plaintiff alleged that the defendants never intended to fulfill their oral agreement when they induced her to convey the land to them. Because genuine issues of material fact concerning fraud were present, summary judgment was properly denied.
We now examine the pleadings and affidavits in the instant case, in light of this Court’s discussion in Ferguson. Plaintiffs complaint contains no allegation that defendant Mitchell Martin made any promise or other statement for the purpose of inducing plaintiff to convey her property to him; while Paragraph 11 of the complaint states that “the Deed was signed with the intent that the property would be held in trust and returned to the plaintiff upon demand,” this allegation goes only to plaintiffs intent, and makes no reference to any action or intention of defendant. Affidavits filed by plaintiff in opposition to defendants’ motion for summary judgment are equally silent as to statements made by defendant Mitchell Allen Martin inducing conveyance of the property. In her affidavit Gail Lyles, plaintiffs daughter, states that she suggested to plaintiff that plaintiff “put [the property] in *161Allen’s [the defendant] name since he is living there.” Ms. Lyles goes on to say, “I called Allen and told him the situation and he understood what the situation was and he agreed to hold the property in his name and I called the lawyer, and I went over with my mother and we put the property in Allen’s name.” The affidavit filed by plaintiff states in pertinent part:
Gail suggested that I put it in Allen’s name because he was living there, and I agreed. The sole purpose for putting it into Allen’s name was for him to hold the property for me, I certainly had no intention of deeding all the property to him .... Allen was living on the premises and when Gail suggested that I put it in his name, I agreed, and she called Allen and asked if it was alright to place it in his name and he agreed. I am sure he understood that the property was being placed in his name merely so that I could continue receiving the SSI check .... Allen paid me no money and merely agreed to have the property placed in his name .... I expected that I could have the deed changed back any time that I asked him to and I am sure that that is what he understood.
We think this evidentiary forecast falls far short of demonstrating a genuine issue of material fact concerning fraud. Plaintiff has nowhere alleged a single statement or promise by defendant that could be said to have misrepresented his intentions or fraudulently induced plaintiff to convey the property to him. Summary judgment for defendants is
