My aunt passed away and left me her half of a mobile home she owned with her boyfriend. He recently moved and the place is now up for sale. How do I make sure I get what’s mine?

The short answer is that you keep an eye on whoever is doing the selling. If you are already on title to the home, then it should be impossible to sell it without you signing off. But if that were the case, you probably would have been asked about this before it went up for sale. If you’re not on title, then there is someone else whose job is to make sure you get your inheritance. Find out who that person is, whether it’s a trustee, executor, administrator, or some other title, and keep an eye on what they’re doing.
