Personal Property, but not Real Property, Was Part of Estate

When decedent deeded property to one of his four children, and there was no credible evidence of any promise or expectation that the property would be reconveyed back to the decedent, the property was not subject to a constructive trust in favor of the estate even though the decedent continue to occupy the property and pay the expenses of maintaining the property, but the “appurtanence clause” in the deed did not transfer ownership of the personal property located on the property, which remained the property of the decedent.  Gilbert Estate, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 225 (Chester Co. O.C. 2017)
