I have been caring for my mother for 11 years in her home. She recently passed away. I am not the executor (thank goodness). A few questions:

What rights do I have as far as staying in the home until probate is complete? And what costs am I responsible for during this time? (eg, rates, repairs, preparing for sale)?

How likely am I to be awarded the entire house should I contest? The will states I receive two-thirds of our home. Due to a chronic back injury, I am unable to return to work.

Thank you.
