I own a house with my brother in joint tenancy. If one of us has to go into the nursing home is there a document such as a trust that will protect the whole house so hospitals/nursing homes can't file a lien. I have asked several attorneys and come up with different answers. I live in MN. Some tell me to put in trust others says do nothing but I would think this is a questions that they are asked who should I believe.

Check with a good elder care lawyer about a trust. I don't know about the Medicaid aspecs of it, but my family trust has kept everything very simple.
