My stepdad, passed away a few months ago. Recently we were cleaning out his rental when we came across a typed “will and testament” that he signed and dated. It names an executer and beneficiaries, but doesn’t have witness signatures. Is it legal?
Without actually seeing the will it is impossible to say for sure. It MAY be possible, or it could lead to expensive litigation leading nowhere. The BEST way to proceed is to consult with a local probate attorney who can review the complete situation and all the facts and provide you real advice....Read more »
The other answers hinted at this, but the actual answer is far more complicated than you might think depending on who survived whom, and whether or not there is a surviving spouse, siblings, parents, etc etc.

More details are needed. Where is your dad in all of this? If you are a minor, and your mom has sole custody of you she can't just 'order' you to move out without making arrangements for your care. She could be charged with child abandonment if she did that.

Without more detail it is impossible to provide a specific answer, and frankly, more specifics in a public forum would be inapporopriate. PLEASE consult with a local real estate attorney to review your whole situation and provide you real advice.

If you don't accept the money, then it passes to the next person who would be entitled to it under either law or the will, and that may not be the person...Read more »
