You need the assistance of an attorney who specializes in real estate and probate law. She can arrange to have the title to the land examined. That is the first step in determining the status of the title and what needs to be done to clear it.

If the property is owned by the group as joint tenants with the right of survivorship, upon the death of an owner their interest passes automatically to the surviving owners. If the property is held by the group as tenants in common, upon the death of an owner their estate must be probated and their interest would pass under the terms of their Will or by the laws of intestacy to their heirs at law.

You should address the situation as soon as possible. The longer you wait the more it will cost to clear the title.

If a life tenant dies what rights does his family tenants have?

When a life tenant dies so does his right to occupy the property. His family inherits no rights unless they are the remaindermen and own the fee to the property. In that case, they own the property free and clear of the life estate. However, the life tenant may have left personal property inside the home. If so it would pass according to their will or according to the laws of intestacy if there was no will. You can check the laws of your state at the related question link below.

Explaining a Quit Claim Deed?

A quit claim deed is a legal document that is used in the real estate industry. It allows a person to relinquish a claim of ownership to a property named in the deed. Even if the person still lists the property in his or her will, the quit claim deed will still stand. The wording given in the document makes it clear that the person is giving up all ownership claims now and forever for themselves and their dependents.Divorce CasesThere are different reasons to use this document, the most common being in divorce cases. When one spouse wants a co-owned property and the other does not, the spouse giving the property up signs the document, which is then filed with the divorce decree. The spouse keeping the property can check with his or her mortgage company to file a notarized copy of the document with the account. It is important to note that signing this document may not relinquish a cosigner's financial obligations under the mortgage contract. Both parties should check with legal counsel and mortgage companies for more information and procedures. Family Members And BusinessesFamily members selling or giving property to one another use the document to allow the receiver to have a clear property title. Businesses such as LLC's, or limited liability corporations, are increasingly using them to buy or sell property. Businesses also use them to clear something known as a "cloud" on a property's title. A cloud is a lien or person that may not have legally relinquished a claim to the property's ownership. The purchasing or selling business will ask the person or lien holder to sign a quit claim deed to remove the cloud.Property Involved In TrustsProperty that is involved in or held by a trust is often transferred from holder to holder with quit claim deeds. This is done by both businesses and family trusts. For example, a house that is owned by several generations of family will be transferred from owner to owner by a quit claim deed, with the trust being the primary property owner/manager, meaning it will stay in the family's ownership regardless of who holds the current title.

Our house is being foreclosed in Michigan can other property owned with a tenancy in common with family members free and clear have a lien put on it as a result of our foreclosure?

Yes, it is not unusual for a lender to seek additional security, in the form of a lien on other land or personal property, once you're in default on the original agreement. If the auction goes badly, they don't want to be left without payment of the outstanding balance. As a tenant in common, you have a separate ownership interest that can be attached and liquidated.
