My father died in Jan 2015.
My sister moved in with my mother Feb. 2015 to care for her.
In April, 2015 my sister sold her home. She was now mortgage free.
The following month, my mother added my sister on to the Title of her home, which she owned free and clear. Even though the will states that we have equal share of all assets, I live 3000 miles away so my mom thought it made the most sense to just add my sister on.
My mom died in Oct 2015.
My sister still lives there, mortgage-free and rent-free, and has no immediate plans to move out.
I'm ashamed to admit this, but until recently, it had never even occurred to me how much she has been benefiting financially all this time and how much I have been losing. For 2 years, she has not had to pay rent or a mortgage payment.
I believe she should be paying me an amount every month that is half of the fair market rent, which is $1950. And since she should have been paying that to me for the last 2 years, that total should be deducted from her share of the proceeds when the house is sold.
I need to know what the law says about this before I talk to her.
