Good afternoon. Is the landlord/owner allowing you to stay? Does the daughter have POA over the owner and their property or decisions?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
She does not have a POA and yes he is allowing us to stay but she is making it impossible. No hot water for the past week. She says she has all financial rights over him.
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Unless the POA allows her to evict and have you removed from the home, she has no right to do so and the landlord and their decision to allow you to remain, would control. Even though she has control of his finances, it may not include the property and the rights to evict, so you could contest this. If she is forcing you out, you could turn around and sue her for the damages suffered and costs incurred, in the move.

She has had her attorney call me and tell me if I didn't come up with $1,000 today that I had to get out her attorney told me that
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

If she has control over his affairs and can not charge rent, there is a legal basis to support that but you need to find out and know the scope of the POA. You can ask the attorney to see this and what legal basis she has to make this demand but if it turns out to be accurate and she now controls his affairs, she can ask for it and does not have to allow you to live there in exchange for your care of him.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
