Unfortunately absent an agreement that survives his death once your brother has passed away all of his affairs are governed by his will. If there is no will it is called an intestacy and his affairs are governed by the Succession Law Reform Act concerning any spouses, former spouses, children, parents, siblings in that order according to specific percentages and guidelines. You need to see a lawyer. You may be able to work something out. Hamoody Hassan, Senior Counsel,

This is general advice, not based upon any particular case, fact or law: seek individual legal advice. I can only answer generally and cannot offer an opinion about your case. If you want an objective opinion or to interview with a lawyer, check out many lawyers on the internet like our firm who offer free consultations on contingency files. You can also phone the Law Society Lawyer Referral Service directly at 1-855-947-5255 or 416-947-5255 (within the GTA), Monday - Friday, between 9 am - 5 pm. They will provide 3 names of lawyers who handle cases like yours. Good Luck! Hamoody Hassan, Senior Counsel,
