Is a contract binding after one party dies?
Recently, my father passed away. Before he died he entered into an agreement with my sister: She would help him with his mortgage payment and taxes on the house he owned. For this she was to get 10% of the profit of the house plus all monies she paid out. The agreement was notarized. My father did not have a will.
Is the agreement still binding after my father's death or is it not binding because he died without a will?
Does all of the profit from the sale of the house become part of the estate?
