My mother has the usufruct on a flat in a complex since 1991.She pays the levy and electricity and general upkeep of the garden and the inside of the property. Now after all these years the daughter who is the heir has less that 2 weeks ago, insisted that she pay the rates and taxes as well. Is this legally my mothers responsibility and what advice can you please give us?
