A: Your friend needs a competent attorney now. The litigation will be difficult and expensive, and time is of the essence. The Will will need to be Probated, and after a title search, the Executor may need to file an Ejectment Action to get the home back to the Devisee. Few attorneys can handle these type of legal problems correctly.
