Yeah, it could be pretty messy. Abigail doesn't seem to have any recourse should Bella not get a loan, and to make matters worse, we're afraid she'll be liable for half the taxes on the house her sister is living in, since she'll be half owner.

Very bad setup. Charlotte never anticipated that Bella wouldn't be able to get the money, so the will doesn't spell out what should happen in that case.
