So is the idea that once your grandson does not need to live there anymore others would inherit the property but so long as he does need to live there he could live there while they would be the owners and have to pay the upkeep for the property?
This can be done by a lawyer who understands the issues. The will would give this grandson a life interest in the cottage which would mean that he can live there for as long as he wanted to. It will could also state that he has to pay a small rent and specify what that rent should be and what it should be increased by each year if at all.
In the well you could also set up a trust that will pay for the upkeep of the cottage over the years and then you would specify who gets the money that's remaining in the trust after the grandson is no longer living in the cottage.
In the will you can also state that others may use the cottage at the same time and you can set out what circumstances must be followed in cases like that.
