Lawyers are not very expensive*, and the government frowns upon legal disputes used to evade taxes. My advice is to pay for a lawyer, it's not very expensive, maybe a couple hundred bucks to discuss your options over a quick 30 minute meeting.
*There's been a glut of lawyers graduating from law schools, a lawyer bubble so to speak. Lawyers are dirt cheap now.
Depends what you consider cheap, I guess. Several people in my family are lawyers, including my father, so I'm well aware of typical costs. My father being a lawyer, I'm also lucky enough that I'd be able to afford the few hundred dollar an hour rates, but I'm also well aware that many aren't.
Getting a lawyer to sit down over 30 minutes at a couple hundred dollars/hr is well worth the $100 to $200 spent over discussions of a house ($50000 - $300,000) or a legal case over said house (thousands of dollars and manhours.) Do it, or get a group therapist. Most families work out something if they are ok with handshake deals, but if you aren't...Get a lawyer and work out something simple. Like a 30 year lease with set rates and stipulations. The guy is wealthy enough to discuss a house, but poor(or better yet smart ) enough that they don't have 2 houses. They can spare the couple hundred bucks to resolve this issue.
