Mom has bi-polar, Parkinson's and diabetes. My dad does not stand up to her about important issues. For a while she was creating debt by charging things on her credit card. Companies would give her credit cards even though she wasn't working. My sisters and I were worried that our parents would lose their home to creditors. So we put the house into my two sisters and my name. Last time when we checked our credit rating my husband's and my name were showing on the loan only, not my sister names. Now things are falling apart on the house. Right now the bathroom floor needs to be replaced. My husband and I do not have the money to pay for it. One of my sisters is taking care of mom's money and paying her bills. She was suppose to repair the floor by saving money up from mom's checks. That was three years ago. The floor still is not fixed. My sisters do not want to keep me updated on the house. One of my sisters is mom's legal caregiver. So I feel I really don't have any power to help my parents. We are also worried that if mom and dad die who is resposible for the house payments? There is a lot of equity in the house. I would hate to see it be lost. We wouldn't be able to sell the house without the floor being fixed and the longer my sister takes to fix it the more money it will cost. Mom and dad have all their needs taken care of, except for house repairs. What are we legally responsible for? Also what happens if mom or dad fall through the floor. Hopefully they wouldn't be hurt but also who is legally responsible for that? I call my mom twice per month and try to find out how they are doing. I never know if she is telling me things accurately. I can't call my sister to find out anything. My husband and I just want to get our names off of my parents house.
We can't do anything about the house and we don't want to be responsible for it. Any suggestions?
