My mom has not directives and I am going for guardianship. The lawyer stated that I would have to get all her assets in place. My mom has two houses the one she lived in and the one my brother lives in currently. He pays no insurance, taxes, or rent on the house. The house is suppose to get transferred upon her death to him but the lawyer stated she is not dead yet and the courts may make my brother pay rent and pay the taxes as well as the insurance on the house while he is living there. She stated it would be up to the court to decide how they want to handle the house with my brother in it. Is that true? I do not want to deal with that house and I would rather have the house given to him. But she stated that the courts probably will not allow that due to there being a five year look back if I place her in a AL. He would like to sell it and move out of the city he is living in but he cannot sell while my mom owns the house. So can they make him pay rent and all the bills? This guardianship sounds like a nightmare.
