Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The problem is that if there is no will leaving the estate to her boyfriend, then you revoking your rights to the estate would not give it to the boyfriend, it would go to the next legal heirs in the statutory line. So, if you want the boyfriend to have everything, all of the sisters have to go through probate and get the property from the estate and then they can make a donation/gift of the property and assets to the boyfriend. So, you and your sisters need to complete probate and get all of the inheritance and you can then write out a donation and give the property to her boyfriend as you wish to do.
