Once upon a time a lovely lady who didn't live near her family but thought the world of her family ,as she was getting older (in her 70's and on her own) decided she wanted to live nearer them .Unfortunately, her house didn't sell for what she expected to re locate, so a grandson whom she adored and who was single at the time thought he could help his grandmother out 'and' have an investment for himself by taking out a mortgage on the extra 33% his grandmother needed. None of the rest of the family were consulted or asked. The grandson just stepped in thinking it would work in his favour as well as the grandmothers. It would be a great investment for him. The grandmother ,who had put £100,000 into her new home and who unquestionably trusted her grandson presumably was advised by the grandson to put the whole house in his name as it was easier for the mortgaged part the grandson had taken out.(grandmother didn't have a mortgage grandson had to take out a small mortgage for the house) The grandmother always told her two daughters that they would have receive a sum of money on her death as the grandmother still believed she owned 66% of the property .Also the grandmother bought a new bathroom ,new french doors, cavity wall insulation and had paid every expense for the upkeep of the property over the years with her own money. The grandson only paid for his part of the mortgage. On her relocation, one of the daughters and her family made sure they did her shopping with her every week ,had her over every weekend ,took her out and looked after her every way they could. The other daughter saw her for half an hour on a Saturday. Unfortunately and very sadly, the grandmother was diagnosed with dementia . The daughter that saw her on the nominal once a week started taking money from the grandmothers account to help fund her own daughter ,and the grandson ,the grandmother entrusted,shockingly decided to take it upon himself to claim the whole house as his . He and his mother ,the other daughter tried to put the grandmother in a home 12 months before she needed to, to give his sister who was on her own with a baby a place to live.The daughter that cared stopped it . But as the grandmother became worse with her illness the choice was taken out of the second daughters hands with authorities saying the grandmother must go into a home. The grandson there after and his mother -the other daughter who did the nominal Saturday visit then laid full claim to the house and even though the grandmother's belongings were still in the house changed the locks and denied all access to the the daughter that cared. Even to get old photos which her mother with dementia loved to see on visits. The second daughter knew that the grandmother's money should go towards the grandmother's care but the daughter who had barely done anything had denied in writing to authorities that her mother own any part of the house ,wanting to support her son ,the grandson as owning the home so that he can pocket the whole house. This was a grandson deeply loved by his grandmother .A grandmother that would buy in his favorite sausages and food. Then the mother of the grandson demands that the house be cleared of all the grandmothers possessions so that the grandson can rent or sell the house. Regardless of the items,more sentimental than monetary that the grandmother may have 'willed to ' family members. Regardless of the grandmother still being alive. Regardless of the fact the grandmother was now near the end. Now refusing food drink and medication which was terrible and emotional in itself Regardless of the love the grandmother showed the grandson.
I am the daughter that cares. My mum ,the grandmother would be beside herself with grief if she knew this was happening.I have to make things right. I don't want my mum's money .It should go towards her care-to the proper authorities. I would like to take this matter to the civil court to challenge and show that my nephew and sister have fraudulently made claims that my mum holds no property or money in that property because she most certainly does .I have seen a solicitor and both the solicitor and I am hopeful that with the evidence I have and that I can produce it will show that my mum has indeed a share in the property .
I want to do this for my mum. I want to make things right but to got through the civil courts takes a lot of money.
I care because this is my mum but first and foremost is a lady with dementia that entrusted certain people because she loves them but now her love is being abused . Why didn't I do anything before? Because you never expect family members to be so awful and there is still a part of you that loves them but it has to stop now. Someone has to do the right thing. Someone has to stand up and say vulnerable people cannot be exploited. EVER.
