My mother passed away in 2010 and my Uncle (her brother) was names as Executor of her Will and Estate.
According to the Will a few small personal items went to various people with "the residue of my estate, real, personal and mixed, whereever situated to my Daughter".
She owned a home with another person. There was no marriage and I was not a minor at the time of her death. No survivorship rights were stated in the Deed of the home and no mention of the home is in the will other than the quoted text above regarding the residue of her estate.
The home is now listed as being owned by "The Estate of ..." and the other co-owner.
Was the Executor responsible for distributing this her 50% of this home to me after probate? How? Should I have a key? Do I need an attorney?
