Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.So I can properly answer your question, I want to make sure I understand correctly. The one remaining living child is the daughter of the father? Or are they the child of the daughter who got the home?Did the daughter who inherited the home leave a spouse? Children?
Thank you for your reply.Unfortunately, the living daughter has no rights to the home now. When the father died, he gave title to the now recently deceased daughter, but the home doesn't "revert back" to his remaining child at his death. Instead, the home becomes part of the decedent's estate, and would typically pass to her heirs/beneficiaries through her will/trust or, if she doesn't have either, by operation of law, known as "intestate succession." Under Tennessee law, where a person has no will or trust, property in a decedent's estate would be inherited entirely by her children (divided equally among them).Alternatively, if she had made one or more of her children joint owners of the home before she died, the house would pass directly to that child or children upon her death.
