The second parent dies and grants life use of the house to two siblings (with 8 remaindermen). One of the siblings has not lived in the house for the past 10 years and chooses not to move back. My question is -Since they both have life use, who is responible for the taxes and upkeep? Is it both siblings or only the sibling choosing to live in the house?

It depends on what the instrument (will or deed) of transfer says.
