Are you saying that the sibling that was given a life interest to the house does not want to live in the house?

As mentioned the youngest sibling was given "exclusive right of residence for his life time".However he has been married for about 10 years has 2 kids and lives with his wife in a home she owns. I'm uncertain as to whether or not he has legal right of 50% share in his wife's home, where he presently resides..He has expressed no interest in ever living in the family home!!! The home is located in County Louth. Thanks..

Oh dear. I just googled where that is and it appears that you are in Ireland.

This question is on the Canada law list. I will ask that site to move it to the correct list.
