The house was left to my brother and myself after parents died. At this time 6 yrs ago, I was in rented accomodation, bringing up full custody of my grand children. Brother wanted to sell house, give me half, but impossible as all my inheritence would go on rented property. Therefore I took out equity release and gave it to him, still owing my brother 40,000, he let us stay there, providing that on the eventual sale of house I have to give him 1/6 th of the sale of the property. At the same time for the last 6 yrs have a written agreement that I must pay him cash (not direct debt etc) a payment of £200 pound a month, which have been doing so which is not coming off the sale of property but just because i live there!! So therefore have paid over 10,000. Now the grandchildren have left home, I have fallen ill, and can not pay the 200 a month. Asked if he will accept 50 pounds, waiting to hear back. As much as I love my brother he has a very different life financially compared to myself. Am I being fair? I personally think what he is doing is illegal as paying no taxes etc on my payments. Any advice would help thanks.
