Me and my dad gave care and lived in this home for many years, she was the landlord and owned everything. She has now passed and the family wants to evict us to claim their part of the will. We are all related. We are paying the bills just fine with no problems but the only problem is that they want us out so they can sell the house for money. This is my home and where I live, this isn’t fair.
ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:
Unfortunately, your grandmother did not execute documents to provide that you and your father can continue to live in the property after her death. From your post, it does not appear that she promised you the home. It is normal that the beneficiaries of an estate would not want to wait years to receive their portion. You can try to buy the home from the estate.
