My mom passed away in July 2015 unexpectantly. She had had an onset of dementia in late 1998 and I moved in to care for her in 2001, but at that time, maintained my own residence. I never occupied my own home because my mom needed continual care. It was on a live in basis for over 10 years. My home was burgularized and then inhabited by addicts.. so I ended my lease and permenantly moved in with my mother in 2005 with the landlords approval.. There was no paperwork signed.. I took care of all of her bills and medical concerns. In 2005, my mom had a major stroke that left her in a vegetative state. In July 2015 we rushed her to the hospital because she was not breathing well. She unfortunately died that night. I had meant so many times to add myself to the lease.. but due to the challenges and exhaution of caring for my mom.. then the onset of my own health issues with breast cancer.. oversized tumors in uterus and clots in my lungs, radiation treatments.. surgeries.. tests.. etc, I didn't sign a valid lease before her death.. Do I have any rights in this case as at least her daughter living there over 10 years.. and even living there as a teen in that community? My mom raised us there and has been a resident for over 40 years.. I was the last to leave the nest even then.. Am I not a tenant? Implied tenant? I am due to have surgery next month and have nowhere to return if the evict me.. I have exhausted all of my own money in caring for my mom and now basically a pauper... She lives in HUD housing, the US, northern CA.
