A: Okay, if I understand what you're writing about, let me summarize: your sister owns a house and she's allowing you to live there? I don't know why she'd be paying YOU to live in HER house though? I will need a little bit more information. Can you provide that? Such as: which one of you owns the house? Which one is renting? Why is sister paying YOU to live there? Do you both own the house? Did you both get the home as part of an estate gift from your parent?
