Q: WNC North ***** *****. Clerk of Court allows sale of life tenant's property, life tenant still living. Allowed? .Edit question detailsThe remainderman had life tenant declared incompetent, then became guardian, then petitioned court to allow sale of life tenant's property to her. Life tenant then dumped in nursing home. Other siblings not notified as clerk determined they had no standing or interest although they had filed an appeal when sibling named guardian. Siblings now fighting back to get mother out of nursing home and prove standing. This seems like a GROSS abuse of power by a clerk of court in NC or an abuse of discretion? Also, determining other siblings would not be notified (and were not aware until after the property was sold) seems like an abuse of power also as all had been involved in case. This abusive guardian keeps this elderly mother isolated from family, even in the nursing home! This is a VERY SAD case in WNC. Siblings were threatened that if they attempted to remove guardian, their mom would go to nursing home to die. The guardian carried out her threat! . Abuse of power by clerk? Also, what do siblings need to file first to contest deed where life estate
was sold in hopes of returning their mother to her home and care for her as promised? We do not know where to start!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The issue is in the state of NC. All info is in what I provided. Biggest question and I forgot to add this, but our mother will be in a nursing home 6 months in two weeks. We are concerned that guardian sibling will then sell her personal property saying she has to pay bills, etc. We need all of this to STOP or Motion for status quo or something to help our mom. What can happen after she is out of home for 6 months in NC?
