I am sorry to hear about this situation. Please clarify: WHO gifted your sister a life estate in the cottage property?
My apologies - I never saw your reply until now for some reason! Regardless, I see that you are in Canada. Ergo, I am going to opt out and move this to the Canadian Law category - you are currently in the US Law category.
I am a lawyer in Canada and your question just appeared on our list.
Do you mean that your mother was given a life interest in the cottage?
Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.
