To Start the state this is all happening in is Alabama. My grandmother owned her house outright, she had this house built after my grandfather's death. She had 5 children, who grew up and married and had children of their own. My mother after her divorce lived in the house with ,y grandmother. When Grandma had her will done my mother was still alive. It stipulated that if my mother survived my grandma she could live in the house if she so chooses. My mother died about 4 years before my grandmother, leaving 4 surviving children. It has always been known in the family that she wanted her children to inherit her house and divide between them. she left what she thought to be a valid will. Now my grandmother died 2 years ago one of her daughters is trying to buy out the remaining siblings. This is where it gets complicated. The probate office has told my aunt that my grandmothers will is not valid because it was not witnessed by two witnesses. Shortly after my grandmothers death I had to sign a paper saying that I had no claim against the estate. It is a very small house in bad shape on about 2 acres of land. Now she cannot get a loan against this house because I had a judgment on me before my mothers death, but my mother died not owning any property. Now they are telling my aunt that there are judgments on this property one by a daughter, and one by me. I do not have the money and cannot get this money because of said judgment. What are my aunts options she has been living in this house for the past 2 years as the owner, paying the taxes and making repairs. I did not think that I had any claim nor did I want any claim on this house, when I signed this paperwork. What can be done to help my aunt? She is worried that she will be forced to move out and she doesn't want to. Is there anything to be done to the person who made this will for my grandmother and didn't procure the other needed signature? I thought by my mother dying before my grandmother that meant nothing for my mothers children. I don't expect nor want anything. Most wills deal with surviving husband and children. I am sorry if this doesn't make any sense and will answer any questions asked of me. Thank you for your time and patience.
