A: Without searching the title, I assume you have the remainder and Mother the life estate. If so your estate does not vest in possession until her death. You cannot enjoy the property until then. If she damages the property, you might sue her for damages/waste. Usually the life tenant pays insurance, note and taxes, but you lose also if they go unpaid.
