OgreMagi: I used to think my family was disfunctional, but stories like this prove we are about as good as it gets.

My dad (passed last month) gave my brother full power of attorney.  My brother got my dad to get a reverse mortgage on the house.  No, my brother wasn't pulling off a scam.  He made sure my dad got a good monthly income from the mortgage company that would sustain him.  None of us were interested in getting the house so it was a good deal all around.  As for dividing up the personal effects.  There have been no arguments other than us having to INSIST my nephew take his grandfather's .22 rifle and acoustic guitar, DAMN IT!

After the service we swapped stories.  My niece loved the one about her grandfather punching out his cousin JG Wentworth when they were teenagers.  Yes.  That JG Wentworth.  The guy was an asshole.


The guy who buys out your settlements?

Seems scammy to me just in principal.

A Terrible Human: When my paternal grandmother died my dad didn't get anything because in her will it said he had borrowed $87,000 throughout her life. My sister me got $100 a piece. My two aunts got around $500,000 from the insurance company while my family lived less than 50 feet away living on food stamps.
/My dad probably deserved getting cut out but what the hell did me and my sister do?


Good question. What did you do for your grandmother. Did you stop by and visit? Help out cleaning her windows?

Hollie Maea: A few years ago, my grandpa got to the point in which he could no longer afford to live at his place.  My parents bought the house from him, and told him he could live there rent free for the rest of his days, no questions asked.

Because they aren't complete and utter assholes.


Maybe not, but I can guarantee that others don't feel the same way.

My friend recently did the same thing with his grandparents. They had retired and paid off the house, but not the taxes associated with it. After decades of unpaid bills they were threatened with eviction by the banks so they can sell their home to pay off the debts. My friend stepped in and bought the house, paid off their outstanding debt, and they are living out their days happily and rent free.

My friend on the other hand is extremely bitter, and always complains about how a substantial chunk of his income is going to a mortgage for a house he doesn't even live in, and to grandparents who were so financially irresponsible that it's leaving him without the means to start a family and get a house of his own.

He tells me he's just waiting for them to drop dead or go into a home so he can put his money to good use.

GalFriday: **NOTE TO ALL FARKERS** Never give your Power of Attorney for money and your Power of Attorney for health to the same person.


Some of us don't really have a choice.  At this point there's only one person in the world that I would trust with either.

weiserfireman: Orange-Pippin: weiserfireman: We had an old man in our community who couldn't take care of himself.  He lived in a house his daughter owned
I don't know the details, but she decided the only thing she could do was evict him.    The Sheriff was scheduled to arrive at 9:30 pm to escort him off the property.
At 8:30pm, the fire department was called.    He has poured a container of gasoline on the floors of the garage and kitchen.   Opened all the doors and windows, lit it, then gone out to the front lawn to watch it while he drank a beer.
When the beer was gone, he killed himself with a shotgun.    This could get a lot worse for this family
/tripped over his body, in the dark, trying to pull a firehouse around to the garage
//saved the house, was repaired and a new family living there in less than 6 months


Wow. That is an absolutely terrible story. I'm so sorry.  If he couldnt take care of himself, how is evicting him going to help matters?  She is partly responsible for that outcome.

The police department had all of his weapons in protective custody, because everyone involved thought he would be suicidal or violent.    He traded a neighbor a rubber raft for the shotgun the day before.


Hopefully she was trying to get him to live in a care home. Some aren't too bad, and people can have the help/supervision they need.

Most people here haven't worked with elderly. I have. Some  quickly deteriorate to the point where they are a danger to themselves(and occasionally,others living nearby). I've seen people try to use toilet bowl cleaner as soap to wash a facecloth. I've found gas stoves left on and empty pots burnt.Some people can't bathe/change their clothes/use the toilet properly, and that leaves them very susceptable to infection.Some will take 3 extra doses of meds one day and none for the next week.Obviously, it can hospitalize them with some non too pleasant side effects. Some can't tell the difference between spoiled food and good food.Remember that super fat dog? Owned by two elderly with dementia.Yes, they will almost always insist they want to be at home and don't want to be in a care home. And they will almost always insist any of their children who think they shouldn't be living at home are evil and trying to take advantage of them. In reality, this is a very difficult decision, and one usually made because family cannot deal with the constant crises stemming from them not being able to properly care for themselves.

Now, I'm not saying there aren't real jerkwads out there who are generally grifting off grandpa, but I am saying that these kind of things aren't always cut and dried as some of you think.

Exodus 20-5: "You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,"

See you hated God and now He's exacting his revenge. Oh, and your kids and grandkids are faked, too.

alaric3: He's old enough to kill his children with impunity right?


Nope, he can litter, another 3 years and he can steal anything he can carry. Then just a few more until legal murder.

kbronsito: ha-ha-guy: Well this could either be a heartless move by a scumbag child or a logical move to put a senile parent in a facility that can actually care for him.  We pretty much had to drag my great aunt out her house kicking and screaming.  She was a 10 hour drive from the nearest family, had fallen for three of those "reseal your driveway scams", had fallen multiple times in the shower, and was living off delivery from the local pizza place.  The thing that provoked her forcible removal was the pizza place worried when she didn't call for two days, a driver stopped by, and found her in the bathroom where she had fallen.

She went to her grave ranting how we stole her house from her and such.

If he's 91, his daughter is probably also old enough to be senile herself.

if she is just being an evil greedy biatch, I hope her kids learn from her example and avenge grandpa by behaving in exactly the same way.


You do realise that Western Society is not setup for very old, in other words needing nursing style care, old people to stay in the family home.

Most women are at work.
Families are smaller

In other words there is no one for a lot of the time to take care of the old person.  We need to stop the guilt trip on people and accept that when you get old you need to factor in a nursing home stint and a facilitated retirement village.

Orange-Pippin: [i.imgur.com image 529x403]

If that is the daughter, she ought to be ASHAMED of herself. I'm sure she will have some tale as to why she feels her actions are justified but it is clear that forgiveness is not in her character.


Damn that is one punchable face...

He looks like he needs assisted living quarters.  He sounds like the kind of guy that would resist that to the point of doing something to leave him dying an agonizing death on the floor by himself while the flames slowly crept in.  But given all the information we have here, there's a big missing piece.  But when have an absence of the other side of the story stopped the hate stew from brewing?

She's hot. When does she wanna 'christen' the house???

Babwa Wawa: I was thinking "what a coont" until I saw this: "my grandfather deserves to stay in his home as long as he possibly can."   Which prompted me to speculate that there might be more to this than just an old man getting evicted by his daughter.  The guy might be unable to live safely by himself, and the daughter is using the only legal mechanism she has to get the fella into a more safe environment.


It's the granddaughter quoted there, not the thieving daughter.
 
2013-05-15 11:28:39 PM
Jesus. If your kids are more worried about getting your crap when you die than they are about you dying, you probably failed as a parent. When grandma goes, all I want is her old piano that she played for my children on.

Ned Stark: skozlaw: As somebody who has dealt with senility in family members, I'm going to withhold judgement on this until I'm certain I know the whole story.

My grandmother had to be put in a home and that meant basically kicking her out of her house. She was too far away from family to be cared for and she was in the hospital four times in a year for heart problems. It was awful, she resented us to her grave, but there was little other choice.

You could have respected your grandmothers wishes and let her keep her own home and a little shred of dignity even if it did cost her two or three years of life that were pretty much bound to be shiat anyway. Seems like a choice to me.


CSB

My 65 year old grandmother is the only of her 4 siblings to visit my 94 yesr old great grandmother in her home. On mothers day. So G grandma starts freaking out saying she's only there to get her money. Says she's going to get a gun and shoot her. So grandma does the logical thing and calls the cops. Cop goes inside. "Ma'am, did you threaten to shoot your daughter?" "YOU'RE GOD DAMN RIGHT I DID!" She goes over to her nightstand and pulls out a snub nose .38. Not long after that we moved her to assisted living. And seriously? Her money? Her house was worth 15 grand, MAYBE. She had zero savings.

Instead of paying the biatch $125,000 There are Mexican cartels that will make sure she has a slow painful death.

My mom's 80, has had Parkinson's for at least 15 years, dementia is getting pretty bad. She's in AL, which sucks, but she simply cannot be left alone for more than a few hours. It's brutal when your parents break down.

WhippingBoy: 56 years and he couldn't pay off his house?


Where does it say that there's any money owed on the house ?

Oh wait, it doesn't.

Warthog: WhippingBoy: 56 years and he couldn't pay off his house?

I took from the article that he owned the house, then the daughter fraudulently transferred it to her name.  The money they are trying to raise is to buy back the house the daughter essentially stole.


"Fraudulently" is yet to be determined. She clearly had the legal right to do with the property as she saw fit. Could have deeded it to herself for any number of legitimate reasons.

Think before you FARK.

jmr61: "Fraudulently" is yet to be determined. She clearly had the legal right to do with the property as she saw fit. Could have deeded it to herself for any number of legitimate reasons.


Actually, according to TFA and the ABC News article linked to in this thread, no, she didn't have the legal right to deed the property to herself, that was a specific legal restriction on her Power of Attorney.

However, although the transfer was illegal, it wasn't discovered until 2010, and apparently the illegal transfer had a 4 year statute of limitations to undo it. . .so while it was transferred illegally, they can't undo it because they didn't discover the title on the house had been transferred until too late.

Maybe I haven't worked with the elderly... but i do have a lot of friends who are stoners and a lot of these things apply.

What? Relevant personal experience instead of uninformed kneejerk reactionism? Am I still on Fark?

I visited her every single day,cause her house was less than 50ft away from the trailer my family lived in. I'd stay with her when my aunt needed to go to store after she got to such a point with the cancer that it was hard for her to move. I dunno what I did wrong but I'm guessing all will crap that was over how much of an asshole my dad was.
