Thank you for your question and for using JA. Please click accept so I will receive credit from JA for my time.

No they cannot and if this is your principal residence and the loan is the original loan, then they cannot obtain a deficiency judgment to attach any of your assets. In any event, your retirement is exempt.

My grandmother is in a nursing home in MN. She has enough money to pay her way for several years. Can she give gifts of cash or property to her kids and grandkids without penalty? How much/person/year?
Lawyer: lwpat, Attorney replied 6 years ago
I assume that you want to proceed with a separate question.

Any gifts within five years of filing for Medicaid will make her ineligible for Medicaid benefits for a certain period of time depending on the regulations in effect at the time she applies. She can gift 13,000 per year per person without having to file a gift tax return and there are no taxes of any kind.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
