My question involves real estate located in the State of: Florida
My mother passed away just over a year ago. The trust in her will stipulated that her husband gets a life estate in their home with myself as remainderman. The house has been re-registered as such. The house was previously in a trust with her as trustee, so he was not even an owner before.
Now her husband wants to move out to a condo that is easier for him to maintain.
There are several questions.
How does one have him disclaim his life estate to have the house registered in my name only? I would imagine the county needs some sort of legal document to do so.
Is he legally owed a portion of the proceeds of a sale or "buyout" otherwise if I am not wanting to sell the property? Does this differ at all when the grantee is not the grantor?
Thank in advance for any advise,
