I have a special interest in Inheritance rights now that my husband has predeceased me. I want to leave it to a friend, if living, who could not afford to live in NY otherwise. or if she is not living, to my sister-in-law. Both are in their eighties and if their husbands are no longer living, will have a hard time supporting themselves. After the battle over my husband’s right to live here, I don’t know what to expect. I am seeing a lawyer about this. The Black Book was never clear. Has anything been clarified? Katy would only say I could leave it to whomever I wanted, but that did not mean they would be approved to live there. If not, could the apt lie vacant (if I am not here) til the 12 years are up, to be sold at market price? Is it more likely they would approve a relative than a friend.?? I have never had a clear answer!!! -Copied in Annoucement Comments: Doris W.
