Re: family deed rights
Your question is very general. If I had more
specifics, I could be more specific. However,
it appears as though the deed would give
your grandmother no less than 1/3 of the
property described in the deed. This is
because Tennesse law gives the surviving
spouse no less than 1/3 of an estate.
In order to comment further, I need to know
if the second husband had children. If he
did not have any children, your grandmother
would own the property in full.
