The answer to this will depend on how the title was vested, and you need to have a local real estate attorney examine the title for the answer to your question. Title can be held in several different configurations, and the way the previous deed was drawn will show that. It's possible your brother has a claim to part/all of your mom's portion of the home, and it's also possible it's entirely your sisters. Run, don't walk, to an attorney's office for the answer to this!
