I share the POA with my Mom's step-son who has done nothing to help over the years and not even a card for Chrismas or her birthday. But has been bullying me ever since I moved back hom after 12 years on my own.
I moved home, as my biological Mom asked me personally to move home and help with things, as also I had seen her sliding down hill burning pots and taking her day and nite meds all in one shot, and the fact she had lost a lot of weight.
So I moved home 4 years ago and started helping out also she wished to help with university.
It ended up being a full-time job and had to quit a few job as she had been slipping further and needing me 24 hrs a day so my schooling was no more than 1 math class.
Now after putting off my life for 4 years, my Mom started waking up and phoning 911 and after a few to many calls I decided she was going to have to live in a assisted living seniors home.
I have had to get into quite a bit of debt not working at a paying job for long, but aleast my finacee has helped me little although she does not make much.
Anyway two months into her gone to home my half-brother who is POA is demanding we start paying $2000 in rent next month, plus $2000 in damage deposit. I lived most of my life in the home and it has no mortage and she has a very good sum of retirement money. The house is willed to me upon her death but he wishes me to step down as POA and pay rent or just pay rent, or rent out thehouse to some else or sell it..
I don't mind paying a little rent, but we cannot afford to live there at that amount and all her items would have to be stored or sold I guess.
3 years ago he tried to block me from putting in new carpet as the old carpet was 33 years old.
Do I have a ny say on the rent as he has done nothing but cause me and Mom to go through hell. She gave him and myself quite a bit when she sold a rental property about 13 years ago and this is what he does.
We also care for my Moms cat and has happened at the wrong time as I just have started a job and cannot afford even a small apartment right now, this does not seem right, What can I do ??
