Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

Can you give me a few more details?

.

Who is the life tenant...husband or the brother? (typically there is only one because it is a period of use that ends upon the death of the life estate holder...

.

Who is the remainderman? ..the one who gets the property when the life tenant passes away..

.

Or did parents have a life estate and then when they passed, it went to husband and brother?

.

.

thanks
