Good morning Jim. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Can you provide me a bit more information? Is the house still in the name of your mother? Could you explain the "by 21 years?" I'm a little unclear about that. Thanks!

About what date did that happen? What do you mean by 21 years? Do you mean she must sell the house within 21 years of her passing?

. I do have a similar question or two. Did you go through the probate court and was your sister name executor by that court?
