My question involves real estate located in the State of: Alabama
My sister's sons both died and they were the named beneficiaries of the life estate. When the first son died, his name was removed and only the second son's name was listed. He passed about two weeks ago. He has two worthless children who apparently now inherit it. He had no will. My sister needs care for dementia. Am I being advised correctly that there is no way to break the life estate and it now passes without a will to her grandchildren. She still lives in the house but needs assisted living badly. She owns a number of acres of land around three houses on a main highway that is zoned commercial so could produce the money for her care. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
