Thank you. Unfortunately, a verbal agreement to a year+ long property interest is invalid under the doctrine of statute of frauds
. See here
I may have mentioned before that this would make someone like you a tenant at sufferance
under Wisconsin's 710.10 (2). See here
A tenant at sufferance is someone who has no right to occupy the premises, but is tolerated by the owner and may be terminated at the will of the owner.
A tenant at sufferance has few rights, but one of these rights is to be evicted. So in other words, one cannot simply physically kick one out of the home. One must be evicted like a tenant who has not paid rent. If after the quick eviction hearing one still does not leave, then, the owner can get a Writ and have the authorities forcibly relocate the individual.
Whether or not one wishes to stay in the property until the eviction or past is up to you, of course. I cannot make this decision. Also, if your attorney is pursuing a suit to possibly somehow have your life estate
interest in the property recognized, then one MAY WISH TO STAY.
But... the decision is yours. I can neither sway nor even recommend a course of action for I have no right to do so.
