Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** *****
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Is there any reason why your mother cannot make a Will now?

No she won't make a wiil

Hi
If there is no will then in fact the house will have to be sold and the proceeds divided equally between the three of you - UNLESS your mother has transferred the property into your brother's name before she dies.
Please ask if you need further details as I am sure that you will
