the deed that I have states joint tenants with rights of survivorship and not as tenants in common, but that is not the same deed that is on file with the city
the original one that i have is from 2003 my husband and mother in law went into the lawyers office and it is notarized...the 2nd one my husband did not know what he was signing..he thought it was just for her to get a copy of the deed
I honestly do not know...because we never got a copy of it all i know it was changed so that when my MIL did pass that her 1/2 of the property would go to my SIL
but like i stated it was changed to benefit my SIL so that when in the event of my MIL's death that my husband would not own the property that my SIL would get 1/2 so it was changed to whatever the tenants in common, but my question is...with it being changed to her owning 1/2 of the property and the fact that she moved in 8 months prior to the death of my MIL...and she had POA & she is executor of will...does she have the right to live there rent free...
my MIL tricked my husband on Date the deed was transferred: 11/13/2006Sale type: Sales between related parties, i.e. Grantor/Grantee, Owner/Tenant..i just found this online...it believe it is tenants in common...the original deed that i have was dated 2003 so with that being said my SIL get's my MIL's 1/2 of the property, but she is not settling any of the debits...she got welfare involved to care for my MIL, and she has to pay them back 26,000.00 from the estate...but what gives her the right to make herself at home without paying rent or paying back the debits of my MIL's estate
I just want to know what my husbands rights are that he has owned this house with his mother since 2003, his mother was forced to change the deed to I believe tenants in common, my SIL has been living there, and thinks that the house is hers, and we want not parts of her, she has forced my MIL to sign many documents when my MIL was not of sound mind, and we have proven that, my SIL has been abusing her authority as POA and now executor of the will...also my MIL did not dis-own my husband in the will...but my SIL made my MIL leave everything to her
Ok..so what about the 26000 that she has to pay back to welfare for the care that was provided for my MIL...she has stated several times that she is not paying them. When she was the one that signed all of the docs for my MIL to get the care, and again she had POA...my husband never signed anything giving welfare to attach any lean onto the property
LOL! Easier said than done with her. So at this point we are going to send her a letter telling her if she wants to continue living there. She has 1 of 3 choices. Either she starts paying rent, buys my husband out or we buy her out. She already has her own home that she owns and is renting out, and she has been living at my MIL's for the past 9 months rent free...there is also a line of credit on the house that my husband took out for my MIL to help her out, that we are stuck paying
Mooch is putting it kindly...my MIL had a brain tumor...I helped care for her, and in April of 2012 my SIL made my MIL sign ins papers making her the beneficiary of the policy that was for my son (who is the only grandchild) at that time in April my MIL was like a child you could get her to sign or do anything. We filed a dispute with the ins co, and still have not heard anything...we provided them with medical records, and also messages from my SIL stating that my son did not deserve it that she did, and that is why she made her mother change it...because she was POA she could not change it herself...she also tried withdrawing money from the line of credit..that is why it was in my husbands name only...but like I said we are stuck paying for it...my MIL changed her will and stated that the line of credit was for her and was to be paid off, but some how her will was changed again...stating that everything goes to my SIL...
well...i do have the medical records,and her one doctor wrote in the report what my SIL said about my MIL...which was ...she has memory loss has gotten worst, she can not be left alone anymore, she forgets to eat and take her meds, she does not know what day it is, she leaves water running all night long, she falls several times a week, she can not even remember if she ate or took her meds...then the doctor confirmed what my SIL had to say...so the way i look at it...is one word KARMA
she made her sign the papers in april of 2012 and the medical report from the doctor was from may 2012
well we have a dispute in with the ins company...they have not paid out on the policy...we can make her life a living hell if we chose too, but at this point we just want her gone, but I think we just have to let her stop thinking she is winning, and I am going to contact a lawyer and ask them to send the letter about the rent, and give her the choices that I mentioned earlier...she is a self centered greedy person, and we are getting tired of paying for the line of credit that we never used...
well we are going to start out with a certified letter, my husband does not want to speak to her, and the best part is...we lived with my MIL for 3 years to help her out, and then we moved 1/2 a block away from her so that we would still be close...with that being said...I will start with certified letter...if no reply then I will seek out a lawyer...i just did not know my husbands rights
I wish that I had the copy of her text message in my pc so that I could show you the type of person she is. Self center, greedy, always trying to beat the system...does not have a problem with taking things that does not belong to her...this is not the 1st time she has taking something that belonged to my son...when my FIL passed he left 3 sets of very old Lionel trains to my son & an old Juke box...she took both...we let it go, but we are not letting this go, because like I said earlier we are paying the line of credit that my husband took out to help my MIL, and it is in his name only...we have to put out 430.00 every month for a house that my SIL in living in rent free, and she is sitting back collecting rent on her own personal property
