My question involves real estate located in the State of: New York
A family member is granted via "Warranty Deed with Reserved Life Use" by their mother. Clause in deed is as follows:
Excepting and reserving to the party of the first part, herein named, XXXXX XXXXX, life estate for and during her natural lifetime. This life use is personal and not assignable or transferable.
She then dies. When will is read, she willed the life use of her home to another sibling.
Is this legal, since the entire property became the grantees upon her death and the deeds reads not assignable and nontransferable?
