We have a land contract with my wife’s uncle on our house. Recently he found out he had 2 week to live and changed his will. It now states that our house is to be inherited by his 2 brothers and a sister. With our names on the deed and his as the mortagee, Do we have legal rights?
As long as you have a valid signed Land Contract, you should be alright. No one can will a house to someone else if they have already sold it. However, the payments due and the balloon balance, if any, will go to one of his heirs. This may well be what happened. Contact me at http://www.kliszlaw.com to discuss further. Tim Klisz
