Hello @JaneW406160 /Nancy: First, please accept my condolences on your parents' passings. It sounds like it has been a long four years for you since your father passed on. To now have uncertainty of your home and conflict with your brother (on top of your grief) is a lot on your plate. And thank you for reaching out on this forum. There are many caregivers, myself included, who've had to handle some difficult family aftermath after their caregiving duties ended. I hope we can collectively help you feel supported and give you some guidance on how to proceed from here.
I understand that finances are tight due to unemployment, but my first recommendation would be for you to find a probate attorney who is licensed in Pennsylvania to consult with. Seek one out who will provide you a consultation appointment at little or no fee. Call your state bar association or local bar association for recommendations if you don't know where to start.
It raised a red flag to me where you said that you believe the will is outdated. This is something that an attorney can talk to you about. Also, they can review any agreement you had with your mother and let you know if it's binding or if it gives you any legal rights. Even if it doesn't, having someone representing your interests will help you to negotiate with your brother and perhaps even mediate a solution.
My heart goes out to you. Please keep us posted on your progress and take care.
