My grandmother bought me a home, but did not leave it to me in her will

Q: As I stated above, my grandmother bought me a home to live in, which I have been in for almost 4 years. It is not stated in her will that she leaves the home to me and now her children want to kick me and my kids to the curb. What are my rights to stay in the home? Also, I’ve only paid all the utilities, not the property taxes on the home in the 4 years I have been here. (Indiana, PA)

A: I would have an attorney look at the will and the deed to this house. Generally, if you are not on the deed, you would have no rights to this property when she passes unless she included you in her will. Unfortunately, paying the utilities will not arise to any property rights
