I sold my Mom's rental house because she is in a nursing home.
The house was my Grandmother's before she passed and left it to my Mom. It was costing her insurance, taxes, lawn care and maintenance and honestly me some headaches and bottom line, I need to start liquidating her assests. Mom is suffering from serious dementia, heart problems, she is blind and has a host of other issues and will never return home. I spoke with her about doing this before, but she gets extremely, over the top nervous and sick whenever I try to discuss anything like this with her. I made a judgement call and chose not to tell her until the sale was complete, but the person who bought the house was so happy she sent Mom candy and a card. Naturally Mom is a mess now - really upset. Although I know I did the right thing - I feel guilty and am now worried about her. This is so much harder than I ever thought it would be. I still have her house and contents left - I don't think I can handle this anymore. I'd appreciate any insight.
