My mother has divided her estate in her will equally between

Resolved Question:

My mother has divided her estate in her will equally between her three children (other than a few small gifts). She owns her house which is obviously part of her estate.
On of my sisters and her husband are living in her house to act as her carer. Will they have additional rights to the house when my mother dies (other than rights as tenants)?

No they won't. They can either move out to allow the sale of the house after your mother's death or they can apply to the estate to buy the property themselves at market value. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my rime.

to confirm. No additional rights over the will?
