...Several years ago he put one of the daughter's names as "co-owner"...

My financial planner suggested that if I ever discover that my father's added my name to any of his accounts or property, then I could most likely successfully disclaim that ownership, on the grounds that I never knew about or consented to it. (My father's also a DIY-er, grrr...)

If the daughter knew about and/or consented to her part-ownership, that would hurt her case. Even if she didn't, "most likely" is unfortunately not as good as "assuredly." But it's something to add to the list of things to look into.
