Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. If your mother's name is XXXXX XXXXX title to the house, he is not going to be able to evict her. The law does not allow a person to be forcibly evicted without someone obtaining an eviction order from acourt. What that means is that before he would be able to evict your mother, hemust file a petition with the court for an eviction order. If she is an owner of the house and living in the house, he has no grounds to evict her, and thus the court will not issue an eviction order. As a result, he cannot evict her. If he tries, the police should be called.

Thank Yoyu for that answer..so my Mom can legally go back to her home when she gets out of the hospital..what if he will not let her in, as she was taken to the hospital without any keys or money..is there anything that I can do../
Yes...she is an owner and going to the hospital is not considered an Abandonment. To lock her out would be an illegal eviction and subject him to actual and Punitive Damages. One, if he won't let her in, she can call the police. Two, if there is any period in which she is locked out, she can also file a civil suit against him to recover any and all costs incurred for temporary room and board, plus punitive damages for his bad faith in attempting an illegal eviction. You're welcome...it's my pleasure to be able to help you!
