Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Can I scan in the actual Deed for you to look at to see if your opinion would change? The reason I ask this is I am confused. My father could not put it into a life estate after he died (for obvious reasons). The deed document reads his name under the Granter side and my brothers and I on the Grantee side but at the bottom it states "Subject to the Granter's reservation of a life estate". See attached.
