She has a few health issues and 80% was watching grand kids from 0-5( last 5 years) so it resulted in to 3 falls which turn out not to be good.So 2 family members have diffenilty taking advatage of this as of few other things.So know mom isn't stable on her feet as good.I do have 1 brother and 2 sisters, my oldest sister deceides she is going to take care of her.My sister home is out of state.We all new it was the right thing to do? well in reality it was because 3 out of 4 had full time jobs. Everthing goes out of state, mail, bank accounts, checking account, Drs.,ect,...? Well it turn out(year later) few things went like... bank and checking accounts ect. but no forwarding of mail? Ok this where it's going to get interesting... So now we know where moms going and 2 of us are thinking we are going to have a empty house... wait a minute...My brother said he's moving in!

You have a House.Yeah but i'm going Sell it and move in fix it all up.(Interesting).Well turn's out mom paying the bills and he staying there for free since going to fix it all up. In Reality what happen he stop paying the mortage walk away and going to move in!Are you Crazy! Whatever!!

How can that be? you are taking care of everything? Wait a minute this on the mortage? Foreclouser? This on my brother house,how come is it's in my Mom's name? Remeber mom is 82 and no job barely get around? How did that happen?Question my brother about it said...i couldn't get it because FHA loan and Divorce at same time so what happen mom just signed her name on the mortage.WOW!! This isn't good!!

These 2 things happened 4 years ago. Ok 1 month after she leaves home there was a modification signed on this note with my mom;s signature and notaritze. My mom wasn't present! WOW!! Ok here is what i;m wanting to know...What type of a lawyer do I need to do the following

Hello

This is Samuel. Is your Mom competent to be making decisions such as signing or cosigning a mortgage?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Real Estate Lawyer: Samuel-II, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Because I suggest you consider going to court and having the court order you as guardian over your Mom. And then you will need to have a local attorney begin proceedings to have all the transactions ordered null and void. Your can also talk with the local District Attorney and discuss possible criminal charges against your brother, if he signed your Mom's name and for his what amounts to "abuse or exploitation of the elderly."

If you can get her to agree to allowing you to be her Power of Attorney you can also go that route, as long as she is indeed competent to be making that decision.

If she is of sound mind, she can grant a POA to anyone she wants to. But that person has a fiduciary responsibility to act within the realm of those powers, which generally are only used if your Mom is incapacitated. POA's can be done without the court being involved. A Guardianship, however, would be court ordered.
