I saw the letter of intent, but since sibling lived in his house after he died, letter is missing. I have a personal letter stating after sibling death I would get home. Can she give Dad's home to her kids? My mDad had her name on deed, but in letter stated it was to be passed on. With my sibling still alive can she give it to her kids?

If her name is on the deed, then I assume she can live in it, sell it, or give it away. Essentially, if her name is on the deed it is not Dad's house ... it is her house.

I don't know if your letter would have any legal validity. I would think it would be a simple consultation with an attorney to get that answered. But if it is not Dad's house, then what he wanted to happen to it may not carry much weight.

Why, oh why, do parents who own valuable property not make clear provisions for what is to happen to that property upon their death ... and to set it up so that their intentions are legally enforceable?

Giving one child a house and telling another child "you can have it when she dies" is just a family feud waiting to happen.
