My father passed away 2 months ago. I would like to know what happens to the house if the house is owned by my father and myself (joint tenants)? Does the bank takes it away? We bought this house 4 yrs ago. The only debt he has that I can think of is his medical bills, which I am working on to pay off via Medicare. My father did not have any Will (Intestate). My concern: As he owns 50% of the house, the hospital or other parties may ask us to sell the house and give them 50% of the money. Is that true? Any assistance in regard to this question is highly appreciated.
