What are my rights and responsibilities regarding my late mother's house?

Question Details: My grandmother died over 4 years ago. She had a Will stating that everything went to my mother and uncle. Then, 2 moths ago, my mother passed without a Will. Unknown to me, the estate of my grandmother for some reason is still in probate. There are 2 claims against it totaling around $15,000. As far as I could tell, by state law, my mother's share would now go to me. My uncle said the current probate lawyer told him the same. My issue is that my uncle is the personal representative and I am not getting the information I believe that I should be. When my mom died before my uncle found out it was not all his, he wanted to keep the house. There is a lot of work to do before it would sell. Now he wants to move out of state and has told me that I have to pay for the taxes, insurance, etc.
