In my mother's will she left $50,000 to my brother and the house to me. I have lived with my mother for over 25yrs and have looked after her for the last 15yrs. My brother has had no contact with us for about 9yrs, I don't even know if he is still alive. Her deceased estate has the cash for her funeral and solicitor fees, not $50,000. I was going to pay the $50,000 from my superannuation because I would like to keep the house as I have lived here so long. I am retired on a pension now but my car is very old and I would like to buy a newer car out of my superannuation. Where would I stand if my mother was to pass away (97yrs) before I was able to bring that money back to $50,000?
