Mother is exucutive of estate over My grandfathers living trust & has informed me that I will not inherit anything from his estates & has cut me off from all support from family leaving me homeless & no explanation as to why she is doing this to me & my children. I feel as if she is stealing whatever is left to me

We're very sorry to hear that, Cheret
You should talk to a real estate lawyer to see your options, to see if there's something you can do; if you have any rights on this situation that can prove what's being done to you is out of bad faith.
Good luck!

Hi, Ester!
No, you don't need to have. But it will make it easier for everyone when the owner of the house passes away, because the decision of inheritance of the house becomes automatic; it avoids going to the lengthy process of probate.
