Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If your uncle named his siblings to receive his share of the home, and one or more of them died before he did, the funds from the sale will go to the survivor beneficiary/ies (which would have been your mom....if she was the only living beneficiary at the time of your uncle's death).
That is the case.....SUBJECT TO the terms of the will --- as it could direct that someone else is to receive that interest, etc. If so, that would control.
Also, if your state has an anti-lapse statute, that could apply. If you'll let me know what state you're in, I'll see what the law is there.
