Hi, I have just joined the forum and am grateful it is here. My mum has Alzheimers and recently went into a care home which is very good and seems pretty settled. Before that my sister, her husband and son were living with her in my mum's house, who has owned it since my dad died. My sisters family moved in with my mum a couple of years ago about 2 years after my mums diagnosis, but while she was still capable of living at home with some help. My sister and husband both worked fulltime but organised for my mum to have support groups to go to some days, but not every day. My mum fell on the stairs and broke her hip one night when everyone was at home, but she got up at night. She went to hospital and from there to the home, as it was deemed by Social Services that she wouldnt be safe left on her own for even a small amount of time at home. Since she has been in hospital and at the home where she will now stay, my sister and her family have continued to live in my mums house. They moved there partly because they had to sell their own home due to financial problems, or it would have been re-possessed. My mum agreed to make my sister a joint bank account holder with her several years ago before she got dementia, and my sister set up direct debits paying all the household bills. However my mum never really accepted her diagnosis, and refused to grant Power of Attorney to my sister. My sister still has access to mums bank account, and pays the care home fees out of it. However, I believe there is at least £500 left of my mums pension per month after the home fees are paid. Since my sister doesnt have POA, all the DD's have to remain in place, - nothing on the bank acct can be changed. My sister doesnt want to apply to the Court of Protection for POA, as she says they will 'interfere too much' in the details of my mums finances. I just really want to know what the legal position is here. My mum initially agreed for my sisters family to move in, but after that didnt like them being there and there was alot of conflict. She seemed to foget she had said they could live there and nothing was written down. Are my sister and her family legally entitled to stay in the house indefinitely? I assume money for most of the household bills are still coming out of my mums account, so basically, its costing them nothing to live there. I know they cant really afford another very good place to live, but they do both work fulltime, and I think this is taking a great deal of advantage. What does anyone else think? Should I talk to a solicitor about this?
