A Life Estate is not terminated until the end of that person's life. However, depending on the wording of the granting document, it may have a clause in it that specifies that it is valid as long as the individual wishes to live there. A person with a real Life Estate could move out and rent the property. Check the documents that granted to right to see if there are limitations.
