SAVING A HOME

HouseElliott Harry’s client was tricked into signing his home over to a nephew.  A few months later, the man’s son found out and brought his father to the Elder Law Clinic.  Elliott did some investigation and research into how we could challenge the gift deed.  Once the Clinic got involved, the nephew agreed to deed our client’s home back to him.

Besides getting his home back, the man is now able to get Medicaid coverage again.  Giving the home away had caused him to be denied coverage, due to strict “asset transfer rules.”

Ben Limehouse (‘14) prepared the deed, pro bono, for our client to get his home back.  Limehouse practices elder law and estate planning with Liipfert Law.
