My mother is in NH and we are getting ready to sell her home and dispose of her possessions. The furniture and appliances have little, if any, value. We believe if mom were able to make decisions re: these items she would want them to go to someone who could use them.
There are a few specific items that have been listed in mom's will that go to certain people. Is it a problem if they take possession now? And if a recipient does take possession and then decides to sell what they have, is that illegal?
