My brother in law, moved into his Grandmother's house. She lives with her daughter. He signed a contract saying he would be on time with payments and once he sold his house would be able to buy this one. He hasn't paid anything and moved out because CPS was called on him. He is verbally abusive to his mother and his family and will not take responsibility for anything. He did some work inside the house (no one asked or hired him to) and is now making "renovations" to it. I use that term loosely because his work is subpar. He now has a "for sale by owner" sign in the yard and is attempting to sell a house he doesn't own. He also expects to be paid for the work he did on his own. Grandma owns the house the money is hers.

Oh, if you really want to know what this man is planning to do, you might have a third party that he doesn't know call and inquire about the For Sale sign. He would then give details of what he is planning to do. See if he is pretending to be the POA. My concern would be that he would NOT turn the money over to grandmother if he did sell it somehow.

If this man is acting like he's the owner and trying to sell the house, I would be concerned that either he has a signed POA giving him the authority to sell the house on grandmother's behalf or he has some fake document saying that he has POA. That would really worry me. Hopefully, a real estate attorney would dig into the matter and expose any shenanigans, but if this man is smooth enough, he might could sell the house without authorization to an unsuspecting purchaser, especially if they pay cash money and don't need a mortgage. An unsuspecting purchaser, could have an unsuspecting attorney and perhaps someone who doesn't have title insurance.

I think I would find out what this man is actually doing and see an attorney to shut it down. It sounds like grandmother is not strong enough to handle this issue. She needs help on it, IMO. It would be a good time to see who does have Durable POA and get that taken care of.

My MIL shows signs of PTSD due to her son verbally abusing her. One of the signs of PTSD is advoidance. That is all I can come up with

You wrote the solution to the problem, and that would be for the MIL to help sell the house the put GMIL Maybe it is what the problem son sees, but he's not going about it the right way. Is there a reason that your MIL is reluctant to change things?

Gma lives with my MIL, who is the troubled man's son. Gma needs to go to a nursing home (she really needs round the clock care and it's too much for the rest of us) but can't afford it, until she sells her house. My MIL is either to stressed out or scared of her son to deal with him. He is nasty and abusive towards her and that makes my family ( her other son, me and our children) her go to. I'm starting to resent her for not taking care of this. Next week she is going on vacation and now we have to stay at her house. So along with the extra running around (having to drive kids to school and go back and forth between her house and ours) I have to take care of Gma. She has horrible diarrhea blow outs, can't do anything on her own or be left alone. My MIL doesn't have a family to shuffle around and no matter how much I communicate this to her, she just doesn't get it. She is burnt out and can only think about how stressed she is and how she doesn't want to deal with her other son. It's infuriating.

That is strange indeed. I would be a bit worried that he is dangerous. I would definitely take the sign down. Is the daughter living with gma the mother of the troubled man? or the aunt? If trouble seems to be brewing, you may want to see about taking a protective order out on him to keep him away.
