Hi, my mother built a house 5 years ago and put up $200k and my nana put in the other $200k and the 4x2 house was split down the middle so they each have their own self contained "units". The house is in my mother's name only and there is no mortgage. The house would be valued at about $400k and the arrangement was that when my nana passed away, she would leave her investment to be split $100k to my mum and the other $100k to her other daughter. My mum and her sister then had a discussion that the sister would receive her inheritance entitlement as rent installments that my mum would receive by renting my nanas side of the house out. This was a verbal agreement only and given that my Aunty is in her early 60's I have raised the issue with my mum that my Aunty wouldn't receive her full inheritance in her life time and then her children would be entitled to the remainder of the $100k still owing as beneficiaries to my aunt's deceased estate. Could they then force my mum to sell her house to pay the remaining balance? Is there any way of legally setting up an agreement that my Aunty agrees to saying that the balance of the inheritance gets paid from my mums estate when she passes and that while she is living they can only receive the inheritance in instalments? I doubt this but I can't come up with any other solutions other than my mum taking out a $100k mortgage to pay out my Aunty but my mum is nearly ready to retire and is not prepared to do this. Can anyone help with this predicament? Many thanks in advance for any suggestions!
