    So far, all I can tell you is what you can or can't do depends on how you granted the life estate and whether you included terms that allow you to revoke it under certain conditions.

    Was it granted by deed?

    Was it granted by some other written document?

    Was it granted informally?

    Start by answering those questions and we'll see where it takes us.

    Although one sure way is getting your mother to release her life estate in writing.

    Unless your mother is willing to relinquish the life estate, there is really nothing you can do to terminate the life estate until your mother fails to perform her obligations to the property.
