Level 8

It is not an inheritance, it is a gift that carries the parents' basis with it. The gain, if any, will be taxable. It is not necessarily capital gain.  You may want to do some reading about Section 1250.

You might direct them to a lawyer that handles Life Estates, to see if this situation can be salvaged, or it might be too late.
