I specifically device and bequeath a life estate of my real property located at LOCATION unto PERSON1 as long as they reside there upon and reasonably maintains the same with the remainder interest to PERSON2.


I specifically device and bequeath the remainder and rest and residue of my property, real or personal, wherever situated, and wherever acquired in equal shares to PERSON 2 and PERSON 1. If one of these heirs predeceases me, or we die in a common disaster, their share shall pass to the survivor.

In the above articles, which person is responsible for the deceased's property at LOCATION? From what I interpret it means PERSON1 is responsible until they die or move to another residence. In either case, all responsibility is transferred to PERSON2. Does this sound right? Also, does anything in Article IV contradict that?
