Hi there! I wondered if anyone can clarify a question about this whole next-of-kin thing. My husband's former mother-in-law (his late wife's mum) is in hospital and they are looking to move her permanently to a specialist EMI unit. This will mean that her home will have to be sold. Obviously it is nothing to do with my husband or me now, but Mum has a daughter in Canada and a grandson in Birmingham. Daughter in Canada has details of all Mum's finances but obviously grandson is here in UK. I have a vague recollection of reading a post on here some time ago that said that it was the person residing in the UK who would be deemed legal next of kin by our local authorities and expected to take the lead on all this sort of thing? Or will it be the daughter who should make the decisions?
