My aunt passed away last July. She was a joint tenant on a quit claim for a property in the state of CT (with my uncle and my mother). The property passed to my uncle and my mother and my aunt's estate picked up the transfer tax. My mother than became ill and passed away in September. As you can guess, her share of the property passed to my uncle, and my mom's estate (read:me) picked up the transfer tax. My mom's share would have passed to my sister and I if she had dissolved the quit claim and formed a tenancy in common. Question: Does the fact that she was ill at the time give me a legal leg to stand on to contest this situation?
