My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: North Carolina.
I gave up my good job in another state to move in with my mother in N Carolina who was elderly. My home back in the other state got forclosed on. I lived with and took care of my mom until she died. She told me over and over again that I would have a place to live(meaning I could stay in her home).
She died. In her will, she left my brother everything. I received one dollar. Since then my brother has allowed me to live in the home, but now he is wanting rent. This is a very old home that is in very bad condition. I have been putting my own money and time into repairs on this property. I would like to stay until my minor children are out of school on spring break or summer, then I will leave. I will of course leave the things that my mother owned since I did not inherit anything. I will only take what I brought in.
What legal rights do I have? I work 6-7 days per week. When he serves eviction papers on me, how long will I have to get out?
That is the main question: How long will I have to vacate the house? I have a lot of my own personal things that will take about about a week to move.
