Re: leaving me the house in a will
I do not believe there is a better way to leave you the house if he does not want you on the title as a joint tenant with right of survivorship. Generally there are no estate taxes unless the estate is very large and generally the estate pays them anyway, not the beneficiary. It depends on the facts of the situation.
