My mom is in a real estate property nightmare with a sibling. A house they inherited from their parents is finally for sale and it will take a miracle. They split the expenses but it is costly. Mom is not in good health and is tired of the responsibility as the property is six hours round trip away. She is wondering if she can legally just give her half to charity? I told her this would affect for 5 years if she ever needs Medicaid but she is in a mess now and the 5 year waiting game may arrive in one year or ten, so you really can't plan your life around it. I know joint property laws are specific per state for spouses but where do siblings stand?
