I think you should get legal advice as to what to do about your half of the house. It will cost you whatever the attorney charges, but in the long run it will save you worry and money finding out before the property is fined for code violations. If you know who drew up your father's Will, I would try calling that attorney as s/he would be familiar with the terms and conditions. Also who has power of attorney for financial matters if your mother is deemed incompetent? You should find that out, too, if it isn't you.
I can understand if you just want to walk away, but first find out legally what obligations you might have before you do.
