My uncle lives in a house that belonged to my grandparents who have both passed away. In my grandparents will it said he could live in the house as long as he was able to pay the bills. He has not paid the taxes for the past 2 years since my grandmother passed away, according to him because his only income is Social Security he is disabled and is unable to work.
The house is now under Sheriff sale to be taken in their possession in June if he does not pay taxes or sell the home. The attorney he has says PA can not take the house because he is disabled, my question is, is this true?
My family's understanding is the taxes have to be paid, or the house has to be sold or taken in Sheriff sale we have been telling him for many months now, he says he can't afford it and the other 4 siblings should help him pay the taxes for my grandparents house.
The house is going to be sold at the Sheriff's sale. The only thing that will stop the sale is the payment of the back taxes. A bankruptcy will postpone it but the house is going to be sold. Since he can't pay the bills, the Will states he cannot live there. You have to see what the Will outlines in that situation. The house may go to another family member.
