Can I refuse an inheritance? 5 Answers as of May 13, 2011I am the administrator of my uncle’s will in which he left me a mobile home that neither I nor anyone else wants. Am I legally responsible for that home? I tried to sell it however the landowner basically wants it off her property, which for me to do so would cost $3750 out of my own pocket. What are my rights? Am I the responsible party? There are numerous nieces and nephews and a daughter-in-law too.

No, you do not have to accept the inheritance and can refuse it. Simply write the Executor and/or the attorney handling the estate a letter (keeping a copy for your records) that you do not wish to accept the mobile home and relinquish it to the estate. Good luck.
