I’m a recent widow. I’m building a house on my son’s and daughter-in-law’s land. Do I have legal ownership? What if they decide to sell, divorce, or die before me?

My son and daughter-in-law just moved into their new home, which is on a one-acre lot. Do I have any legal ownership? Asking your son and daughter-in-law to sign the lease may be an awkward conversation to have this late in the process, but it’s something you need to do.
