Sounds like a lot can happen, and where money or land is involved, my experience has been anything can and usually does happen. Many years ago my grandmother offered the small farm she was living on to whichever sister would see to it that she could live out her days on the place. All 3 wanted the deal, however each had their own set of specifics - with two of the 3 wanting to move her into their home. My parents were the only ones agreeing to let her live on the place in return for a will. They later regretted ever agreeing to this, as things went south quickly. Dad was farming the place, and had threats, equipment damaged, etc and litterally could not leave a tractor on the property for fear of damage (I believe both his tractors had sand added to the crankcases). My parents finally gave my grandmother an ultimatum that she either made the deeds over to my parents or they wanted out of the agreement. They got the deeds, however the other two siblings ended up filing a law suit saying that my grandmother was not of sound mind when she wrote the will nor made the deeds. It never went to court, but basically tied up the land for several years with the legal proceedings hanging over their heads. This was about 40 years ago, and I was small and do not recall all the details, but just to give an example of how bitter the battle was, one of my aunts passed on and my mother did not know her own sister had passed until she read it in the obituaries in the local paper. I know this is a different scenario, but just an example of how things can turn ugly where land or money is involved, regardless of how well thought out or good intentions initially. I just a neighboring family up my road part ways when the mother never made any sort of arrangements prior to her passing - thinking that everyone could agree (only takes one disagreement to turn things ugly). Good luck, and I hope it all works out for the best.
