A friend of mine owns a house in Alabama. Her husband owns a life estate in the house (which I understand means he has the right to live in the house until he dies). The life estate was sold at auction for $10,500.00. Can my friend's husband redeem the life estate for auction price...if so, how long does he have to redeem it.
Also, can person who bought the Life Estate at auction have the owner of the house evicted?

Hi moorod,

You need to contact an attorney in order to find out whether or not your friend's husband will be able to redeem the life estate. Moreover, it will be the discretion of the purchaser whether or not he will sell it off.

I don't think that the person, who bought the life estate, will be able to evict the property owner from the property.
