A: I understand your question to be as follows. Mom had a life estate in a property and you and your brother were the "remaindermen" - the house goes to you both upon your mother's passing. Mom passed and you want to know how your brother can convey his interest to you? Yes that is something we can assist with by preparing a Quitclaim Deed for your brother to sign that gets recorded. Hopefully that answers your question. Thank you.
