Looking over my mom's Trust, it is just a big slap in the face. She sold my brother half her house for $10-- the house he hates but I have loved and cared for my whole life. She gave him sole power to do literally whatever he wants: use her credit cards, make investments, mortgage the house, borrow money, sell tne house.... What on earth would compel someone with two children to do this? Especially when my brother has had a spending addiction his whole life? I also looked over the title succession carefully last night. In 1993, my mom gave my brother power of attorney and mortgaged her house for the equivalent of $120,000. My mom was a retired schoolteacher making 60k in pensions and social security with a huge annuity and less tban 500 dollars in bills each month. She has the same car she bought with cash in 1988. She wears the same clothes from kmart day in and day out. Where is that money? The house was then mortgaged five more times, every four to six years, up to the current $194k mortgage. Where did my mom spend 200,000? Medicare covers all of her medical bills. I should know as I paid them all when she went blind seven years ago. Is it possible that my brothers out of control use of my mom and her assets is all totally legal?
