My father owns a house in Arizona Pima County, but lives in

My father owns a house in Arizona Pima County, but lives in Ohio.There is a $70K principal balance owed on the Arizona property.A relative who is going to be the sole beneficiary of the Arizona house upon my fathers death, got him to sign a Beneficiary Deed. Here is my worry. Does this Deed that is held to Arizona Law, require that the house be paid in full from my fathers assets prior to the transfer to the beneficiary? In other words, is this a really sneaky way to obtain a larger portion of my fathers assets? I am fine letting the relative get the house with all current principal plus remaining debt. I am not happy with it if they receive the paid in full from my father assets. My father is still alive and he also doe snot want this to happen. So I need to figure what to do here.

Our primary and only residence (between 1996 and 2011) where

Our primary and only residence (between 1996 and 2011) where we resided in Vienna Virginia (accept for a 3 year duration when we lived abroad on work assignment) we rented out in 2011 when we bought a second residence. Altogether we have lived 12 years of the 20 years of owning our Vienna residence as primary residence (60 percent of the time).If we sell the house now we understand that we will have to pay the full capital gains tax and not be able to get the exemption on capital gains (ie of the $250K individual and $500K joint). We understand the test for exemption is 2 yrs of the last 5 yrs (40 percent). Would IRS accommodate a case where you have lived in the residence a total of 60 percent. Would IRS make exemptions on a case by case to people who have lived well over the 40 percent threshold applied over the last five year test period ?

I thought under federal law I was allowed to assume mortgage. The state is Illinois

My parents signed a Quit Claim deed house we all live

My parents signed a Quit Claim deed for the house we all live in. The mortgage is in their name, but my name is ***** ***** deed as a life estate (I think that's what it's called). I want to continue living in the house after they die. Once they're gone, do I need to put a down payment on the house, or can I just assume responsibility for the payments? Would I have to be approved to take over the rest of the mortgage through a lender?
