Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Connecticut
my mother recently passed away, there is only my sister and I , so the will reads 50/50. my sister does not want the house, I do so I will have to buy her half out. I would like to get a home equity instead of a mortage but for me to do this I need my name on the deed. Is there a way to do this ?

You'll need to open the estate for your mother and have the property deeded to you by way of a fiduciary's deed. Depending on what's in the estate, you may need to have a mutual distribution agreement drawn up between you and your sister.
