My question involves real estate located in the State of: Ohio
Hi, I've held title in home for over 20 years with Mom having life estate. She moved out of house a few months ago to a senior living. I live in the house. Through family conflict, she is now wanting to revoke the life estate. She has gone to an attorney and drawn up papers, and called today to ask me to sign them. I have lived in house over 20 years - done all maintenance, built new garage, furnace, windows... All upkeep, paid all bills (except property tax and house insurance). I live here now, and don't want to lose everything I have done over years. She says she wants to do this because she might want to move back, and I told her she has that right always, but now says she doesn't trust me (due to family conflicts). I don't want to give this up, or if I do, can I put a lien on house for what I put into it? Or work with atty to get something? Why should I walk away from all I've done all these YEARS? She is 80 years old, and I have taken care of her all this time in the house. Thanks. Desparate.
