You will need to speak with a real estate attorney as well as a CPA regarding the tax & liabilities for the property. Assets gained from occupancy can be written off towards their inheritance potentially due to the lack of rent paid if that's the case. But a real estate attorney can best advise you on how to proceed.

Hope that helps, check back with us to let us know how you make out
