Yeah, right.

Here's proof that parents should never sign a property title over to a child any sooner than in their will:  a man served his 98 year old mother with an eviction notice.  On her birthday.

The creep claimed that he was just concerned about her, that she'd fallen a few times.  Then he admitted that he hadn't been to visit her in eight months, and that he hadn't had a nursing home picked out when he served her with the eviction notice, then put the house up for sale.

I think somebody ought to look into the asshole's finances, and find out how close to bankruptcy he is. 


  1. Here's the thing, regardless of what his legal rights may have been, I would still get adult protective services involved. What is technically legal in regards to title may not be legal in regards to the health and wellness of an elderly person. I promise he's going to be dealing with a whole lot of visits from big government for being a stupid idiot in public.

  2. I hope that guy gets kicked in the ass hard - by God or karma or whatever - for what he's trying to do. What a scumbag.

    I know: I hope the house doesn't sell until well AFTER his mom has died. And that she has quite a few more years of life ahead of her.

    I've had relatives who HAD to go to nursing homes; I'd do everything I could within my power to keep my parents from having to spend the last years of their lives in one. Even in a nice one.

  3. For those folks who do this title change for necessity and not greed.....

    Should an elderly person be hospitalized (ie, California) in a county hospital, the county CAN attach a lien against the property to recover all $$ paid for health care.

    So, change ownership and protect the estate.

  4. 45er--serves the jerk right.

    Ricki--I certainly hope so.

    OCM--it's not too different in Missouri; however, there are ways around having the title in your own name or placing it in the name of a child you shouldn't necessarily trust. Specifically, set up the trust, and put all of your assets in it with yourself as the executor until your death. Do it early, long before you're going to need to, and they can't touch your stuff.
