Q: Can executor kick me out of home when my boyfriend is beneficiary?
My boyfriends brother is the executor and we dont get along and me and my boyfriend the beneficiary have been living in this home for 9 years together. Can his brother kick me out while it's in probate
A: This is impossible to answer without knowing all the facts such as how many beneficiaries there are in total and what the debts are that have to be paid. So yes, it's possible to get kicked out but again that depends on all the facts. Your boyfriend needs to consult with an attorney. You are only a guest of your boyfriend's so you can't take care of this.
A: I recommend your boyfriend consider consulting with a probate attorney to learn his rights. It's possible that he will need to vacate the home so that it can be sold. However, it is also possible that his attorney can help negotiate a settlement to allow you and your boyfriend to continue living there. If it is a financial strain it may be possible to request a partial distribution from the estate to assist your boyfriend with the expenses of a move. Ultimately, it's smart for your boyfriend to learn what his rights are as a beneficiary of this estate. Good luck!
