A word of caution, I don’t know if your dad is on Medicare, but should you dad get ill, become hospitalized, and God forbid, passes away. Medicare can come after the estate for reimbursement of the medical bills. If your dad is on title to your house, your house will be part of the estate.

We found out Medicare secrets when my father got ill. Because he had some money in the bank (his retirement fund) Medicare refused to cover the bills. It was a mess. Luckily the house was in my brother’s name.
