my mom has been in an iowa nursing home for almost 2 years (with Medicaid). we are in the process of trying to sell her house (dad died 2 years ago). there are some pieces of furniture that I would like to have. my brother (executor) doesn't want any furniture removed from the house. he is nervous that the realtor and people who have looked at the house may tell dhs what was in the house and what is missing at the estate auction and that he will get in trouble. I feel this is highly unlikely. putting my brother aside, what can we legally take? thanks!
