Hi and welcome back to JA. Ray here to help you. Here the property passed as it was a warranty deed.The father in law or his estate would have to file a suit to quiet title here and seek to prove that they reserved the life estate.This may be very difficult to prove if it has been a long period of time.They did not reserve it as they intended and it would take such a suit now to try and overturn it.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish I had better news here.Thanks again.
