After my aunt had a 2nd stroke I quit my job to be her caregiver. We owned a house together. She paid me $100. a month and food. It was her belief and mine that I would receive the house in full after her death as my name was on everything else. She even told her doctors' this. Well since she passed away with no will I have been told that the house was not put in joint tenancy but in tenets in common which means probate and I have since learned that a nephew who never wanted to talk to her (over 24years) will inherit 1/2 of her estate and wants me to sell the house as fast as possible. I just began probate and have been told that since I am unemployed I have no choice but to sell as quickly as possible to pay him, since I have no income I have also been told that I will have a very hard time finding a place to live. There is no HUD housing where I live as they ran out of government funding and I don't qualify for senior housing because I am 55 years old. The sad part is that I lost 15years of having my Social Security Taxes being paid and if I can find a job I will have to continue working until I die.
