Here's the whole problem

Man and a woman get married have a home have 1 son and 1 daughter
Kids get married
Daughter has 3 kids then dies young, father of kids takes kids and leaves town and they dont return. One of the kids stays in touch with their uncle
Man dies and leaves half of house to Woman and the other half to split between the Son and the Daughters kids
Woman dies and has a will leaving everything to Son (cuz those kids never did come round)
So now Son has 3/4 and the other 1/4 belongs to 3 kids
2 of the kids supposedly said fine with that, 1 kid says "I want more money than this" and got into a shouting match with the Son’s Lawyer.
Son is going to have to go to court in order to get it taken care of and that could take 30-90 days if it goes to court.

And now my world has gone to hell in a handbasket.

We are trying to work this. They have offered to let us take possession and live there rent free til this is settled especially since we have already sunk money in on it (remember the gutters yeah I paid and put those up with my family) ..contracts would be made up for this. Unless these damn greedy bastards get their heads on straight which could happen when they realize they have to get a lawyer, drive up from Memphis TN, etc. Im not holding my breath...people for the most part are greedy ruthless creatures. That is with the exception of you guys.

I would keep looking. I know that is not what you want to hear, but as a back up, keep looking in the case something better pops up. Right now they say it is no big deal but when there is someone contesting the deal, it could take a very long time or no time at all. You will not know till it is over. In the mean time, look around for something else just in case. Sometimes fate has a different plan and could care less if we are upset.
Best of wishes to you both. I hope all works out in your favor.
