My great grandmother and greatfather has a deed to the house, they have been deceased over 40 years and my grandmother has filed homestead exemption on the residence she has 1 son and he wants to relinquish his rights to the residence and so does she and I want to buy the house and be the sole owner of the property. I have power of attorney and durable power since she is in ill health. We want to keep the house in the family, but we want to cya (cover your ass) in case we have to put her in a nursing home. We don't want the nursing home to take the house what is the best option? I spoke with an attorney and they said to do the quit claim but after further research I was told by the tax assesor at the county court house that affidavits had to be signed so my grandmother and father would relinquish their rights and I can buy the house out right and be the sole owner and the nursing home could not take the house. What is the best way to handle this situation?
