My father was also a Life Tenant on the deed. I am the sole owner on the deed.
I wanted to make sure you got my response. I have always been the sole owner of the home. My father was life tenant, NOT life estate
We have been a close knit family and wanted to reassure all involved that they would be taken care of and had a place to live if I passed away. My father is not an issue according to the real estate attorney and needs to sign a paper which my father will gladly do. He now lives 3 miles from my husband and myself. I just married a year ago and huband lives 60 miles from the home-thus the selling of home in Erie. According to the lawyer it is the 2 deceased family members that are the issue.
My husband and I personally went to New Castle and got certified copies of their death certificates and E-mailed them. So I agree, there is NO problem. Thank you very much for your time Barrister.
