if both of their names were on the deed than he gifted 1/2 to her. that is the amount the look back can go for. She should be prepared to pay off 1/2 the value of the place. not sure if they will want the fair market price of 2 years ago or now.

if he had given her the place 6 years ago it would have been a non event for look back. too bad.

good luck.
