Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am sorry for your loss.
When did your mother die?Are you saying the Will gives ownership rights to the house or just a life tenancy?And if it does give ownership rights where does your sister get the idea she can sell the house instead of passing it to you?
Then your sister has no right whatsoever to sell the house. It is a clear breach of the provisions of the Will and a total disregard for your mother's wishes.
She should be told at once that if she doesn't strictly adhere to the provisions of the Will then you will seek a court order removing her from her position as executor.
Does that help as a starting point?
