Is the parent on the deed as a co-owner of the property?
If so, did they take title as "joint tenants"?
Ok, then if the parent is not on the deed or title, then the property wouldn't be considered an asset to be included in their estate since they do not have a legal ownership interest in it. They just signed agreeing to be liable for the debt.
