Q: Do I have any rights to my deceased grandmother's condo? My uncle is trying to sell it while I'm living in it.
I have been living with my grandmother for the last year as her caregiver. Her will left everything to one of my two uncles, but he doesn't want anything because he receives social security and doesn't want to jeopardize it. My uncle who is trying to kick me out and sell the condo hasn't been had contact with my grandmother for over 6 years but as soon as she passed away, he showed up. so, do I have any right to share of the condo seeing that me nor my uncle were included in the will?
A: You could file a claim against her estate within 6 months of the date of death for payment as a caregiver if you had an agreement to receive payment. Otherwise, your uncle now owns the condo and has the right to sell it.
