Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.
The best thing to do here would be to do a lady bird deed.This gives her a life estate and you are the remaindermen.This avoids medicaid problems and probate here if she needs nursing home care.
Here are free forms to do this, you sing in front of a notary and file it in t he county deed records.When your mother deceases you just file a copy of the death certificate in the deed records to affect the transfer.
It also keeps the taxes down because she is the life estate owner while she is alive.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
