Must a parent with lifetime rights sign sale contract?

You mean a contract to sell a property in which the parent has a life estate? No. If the children want to sell their future interest in the property, it is separate from the rights of the parent with a life estate. Similarly, the children do not need to be asked if the the parent wants to sell (or mortgage) his or her life estate to someone else. On the other hand, if the buyers want clear title, with no life estate, then you have a different problem: terminating the life estate, by merging it with the future estate, and what's in it for you?

Can a child have the rights to their parents' property if in jail?

Generally, being incarcerated does not take away a person's property rights. However, if there is a mortgage to pay, property taxes, insurance and utility bills, the property could be lost for non-payment. If you are dwelling in the property and paying for the upkeep and maintenance, then you should request your parent transfer ownership to you. If you need to manage the property for your parent then he/she must execute a Power of Attorney that names you as the attorney-in-fact. That would give you the authority to stand in for your parent, sign your parent's name and manage the property. The parent could also transfer ownership to the children if he/she will be incarcerated for a long time. The situation changes when a parent is found criminally responsible for the death of the other parent. In that case the incarcerated parent's right to any marital property is wiped out and title passes to the children. You should seek the advice of an attorney in your area who could review your situation and determine what your rights and options are.

If someone gives you lifetime rights to a home what do you need to do to make it legal?

Answer:On the discussion page you explained that you want to give your daughter lifetime rights to live in your home. The legal term for lifetime rights in real property is a life estate. The most common way to create 'lifetime rights' in real estate is by granting a life estate in a deed. However, that may not be the best option to use if your daughter does not have legal capacity.Granting a life estate in real property gives the life tenant the right to the use and possession of the property for the duration of their natural life. The property cannot be mortgaged, refinanced or sold without the written consent of the life tenant. You need to discuss this issue with an attorney who can review your situation, the reason you have made such a decision and explain your options. The attorney should be an expert in estate planning.
