Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thanks for your question and good evening.My sympathy here for your situation and dilemma.
There are two ways here to get full and clear title.You can get the remaining life tenant to quitclaim the property to you.The other option here would be a suit to quiet title.In such a suit you argue abandonment as per the deed and the court if they agree awards you complete legal title.You cannot simply deed around this other party it would require either a quitclaim or the suit to quiet title.
Here is information about a quiet title action.
These are your options to clear out the life estate interest.If you can get the party to sign a quitclaim that would be the simplest and cheapest way to resolve this matter.Otherwise a suit to quiet title is the only other option.
