It’s now willed to his godson. My Mom is 82 and suffers from chronic illnesses. She has lived in this home for the past 40. Who is responsible for the care of the home such as roof repair, painting, etc? She seems to think that since she doesn’t own the home per se, she shouldn’t have to pay for major upkeep since the house is willed to the godson of her foster brother. The house is unkept and need of repairs. In fact, she should have never been a life tenant due to her age and medical condition. The godson had no idea of the condition of the property beforehand. He doesn’t know what it looks like now. The house should have been inspected. Who is responsible for this house? It’s a safety hazard, has mole, and mice infested, and filled with ‘stuff’. This is how my Mom chooses to live, because she “won’t do repairs on someone else’s home that she said was verbally agreed upon to be her home” by her late foster brother.
