Mom died leaving me the entire inheritance, but there's a problem

My mother passed away recently and left the entire estate, house, and everything to me. I am the sole heir.

Here’s where things get interesting: I have a sister; my mother’s birth daughter.

Unfortunately, our mother hasn’t trusted her own daughter since she got addicted to hard drugs, broke into our mom’s house to steal around $80,000 worth of jewelry and family heirlooms to sell for more drugs.

My sister has been in prison off and on now for my entire adult life, and frankly I’m quite embarrassed by her. We effectively have no relationship since I don’t want to be a part of that lifestyle.

I’ve been thinking for a very long time to avoid splitting the inheritance at all with my sister. The problem then becomes retaliation, and she has the means and connections to do so very effectively.

I want to keep the house and rent it out for monthly rental income, but I’m genuinely afraid my sister will destroy the house out of spite, even though she is legally not allowed to get close to the house due to a long-standing restraining order.

What should I do? Sell the house and invest the money differently? Rent it out and hope for the best? I really don’t think I will split the money or anything else with my sister.

  • Liquidate the assets, launder the money in your own name, and maybe (maybe) give your sister a coin. But sell and use the assets to your advantage.

  • First and foremost, I am sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is rough.

    Hope you're enjoying the result of bringing a legitimate, complex issue to the Hyena Pit here, lol. Always good for either a chuckle or for a lowering of your faith in humanity, whichever you prefer.

    It's hard to walk away from an investment opportunity like a rental. However, if your sister is that far gone, living your life looking over your shoulder just isn't worth it. Worrying about whether your house will end up being burned to the ground, plus dealing with the legalities around your tenants at the time afterwards, is a headache you don't need.

    I'd vote for liquidating as well. But as I said earlier, consider the source! ;) Even the halfway sane comments below are coming from this cesspool of a site. You're ultimately better off weighing the "wisdom" of a better quality cesspool like a lawyer's office. (After being the executor for my mother's estate, I understand now why there are so many "dead lawyer" jokes. Seriously, watch your back with them.)

    As for yourself, remember to take care of yourself as well and as often as possible. :)

    Best of luck with the future.

  • Given what you stated liquidating the assets and reinvesting elsewhere would take your sister out of the picture. Make an appt with a financial advisor and get some sound direction so that your moms estate left to you is well cared for.
    I am quite aware what parasites like your sister are about and capable of.

  • My sister was like that a drunk and stoner always asking for cash.

    I got so fed up I said you want money blow me and swallow. She started screaming I was a sick pervert and left.

    I am hour later she rang the bell came in pushed against the wall and blew me and swallowed.

    I gave her $50. This has been going on every day for 5 years now.

    She gives great head.
