How can you remove a life estate from a house deed?


Answer by  acre (29)

You can remove any party to a deed if the holder of the interest is willing to sign a quit-claim deed, relinquishing their interest in the property. If that party does not wish to sign or you cannot located them then have an attorney pursue a "suit for quiet title"

Proof of death of the life tenant will remove the life estate from the title to real property. Request a certificate of death from the registrar of the county where the life tenant resided, and recorded it in the real property records of the county where the property is situated.

A life estate gives someone the right of possession for the remainder of a measuring life. This can be the life of the person granted the life estate or someone else. A life estate can be removed from a deed by someone with a remaining interest.

The only people who can edit deeds are real estate attorneys, who need to rewrite the deed with the new information, and do a new title search if one has not been done recently.

The person who is entitled to the life estate can waive it. They would file a waiver or quit-claim deed relinquishing all rights to the house.
