My Father in law has passed away and has left a will in which he has nominated my husband as beneficiary of the family home.
My husband’s sister is claiming that we pay occupational rent (based on her share in the mothers estate) since their mother passed away before the father without a will. Now both deceased estates are being wound up.
My husband and I live on the property and pay the lights, water, rates, maintenance, and take care and feed 3 dogs which belonged to my father in law. Please advise if we have to pay occupational rent?
