My elderly father put his property into a Enhanced Life Estate Deed (Lady Bird) in April 2012 just after my mother died. In August of 2012, a creditor placed a lien on the property for a debt that my father did not know about. The creditor never served nor sent any papers to my father, however, my father found out about this lien when the courts sent him the final court papers. Can a creditor legally place a lien on a Life Estate Deed, and if so, who is responsible to pay the debt? My father lives in Michigan and the debt in question was in both my parents name.
