Asked by Ny Outdoorsman, Pennsylvania • Fri Jul 10, 2009
I am looking for clarification regarding a family dilemma. Elderly family member A sold a house to member B about 11 years ago (mortgage was paid up). B is the deed holder, but A was added to the title for purposes of life estate / tenency so he could live there until death. Member A's health is failing, and it has been determined he should be institutionalized. He currently has little to no assets to speak of, much less enough to pay for his care. We overheard someone at the institution say they might seek to place a lien on this property that he once owned.
My question is: Can medicaid place a lien on the property that member A has right of life estate to?
