My Mothers at the early stages and lives with my sister who is joint owner of their house , should my mother have to go into a home would my sister have problems relating to the house (to cover costs etc.)? This is something we dread but think it might end up happening although it feels unthinkable now, my Mums so Intelligent ,smart and wonderful she lost my Dad when she was 38 and because of her wonderful strength of character we (3 girls) have had wonderful lives. It's devastating to see her failing we know what can happen as my Grandfather started the in the same way My Mum is 78 .:(

Hi Maydee

Welcome. I would suggest that you get some advice from a solicitor or the CAB ref the house, act now before it is too late. Other TPers may have specific advice as it is unusual to see a unique problem in TP. Keep us posted and good luck.

Hugs

Dick

Hiya Maydee,
See a solicitor whilst mum is still in early stages; I think it is to do with whether the house is owned as a joint tenancy or tenants in common, but there are ways of ensuring that your sister will still have a roof over her head! Also need to get mum to sign Enduring Power of Attorney (I'm sure someone will direct you to a recent thread where there has been a lot of discussion).
Best wishes,
Amy
