If both my mother and myself are on the property deed, but she has lifetime living rights, who actually owns the property?
1 Answer from Attorneys
If both you and your mother are listed on the deed without restriction or qualification, then
the two of you are the actual owners of this property described in the deed with your
mother also having a life estate in the property which is essentially meaningless in
this instance if she already is listed as what the law terms an "owner in fee simple".
