My mother put my brother on her deed as a" joint tenant" in 2004- only as a way to avoid probate for her small property upon her death. He was supposed to sell it and divide things up between the 3 of us kids whenever he passed away. Her property is a little park model mobile home and includes the land, the small lot under it. Her fear was that her entire estate would be eaten up in probate and there would be nothing left to leave us. 2 years ago Mom fell and fractured her back in 3 places. I took her in with me in my senior apartment and cared for her for a year and a half, 24/7. I am on disability and have very little income, and Mom and I together have very little. She was getting very depressed and missed her friends ... and I decided It would be the best thing for her to go back home, and age in place. She talked to my brother about signing off as joint tenant and putting me on in his stead and he was agreeable to that as was my sister. Because I was a home health nurse for many years - even with my health issues- I have been able to give my mother excellent care.
Well, now it has been 2 years and my brother has not signed off. My sister lives across the country and has a lot of problems herself. My brother lives 70 miles away - 1 hr drive we have only seen him once. What should I do, I am afraid of becoming homeless if Mom passes.
