10 years ago my father passed away without a will. The home was solely in his name. The home was passed to my sister and me through court decree because intestacy with life estate to my mom. My mom has lived in the house for 10 years but has recently moved to an assisted living place due to dementia. We are looking at selling the house. My legal question is this: with the sale of the house, does any portion (based on the life estate table) legally go to my mom as part of the Medicaid spend down or would the entire proceeds go to my sister and me as we are outside of the 5 year look back window when the life estate was established with my dad’s death 10 years ago. Are the life estate tables only pertinent within the 5 year Medicaid look back? Minnesota.
