Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What income do you have?
Are you using your own funds to keep the house going?
Are there sufficient other funds to pay for your mother's care?
I am out until this evening but will resume then - in the mean time please do not worry it is going to be fine and you will not have to pay anything other than nominal rent 9which you already are)
What exactly has the Guardians office said?
How have they become involved?
So the bank alerted the Office of the Guardian?
How will you cope with the Care Home bill when that investment runs out?
If the £500 to your sister ends will she still support you remaining in the house?
There is no basis on which the payments to your sister can be saved I am afraid.
However you can write to the Guardian pointing out that in fact you came to live with your parents after your divorce and were invited to once more make your home with them and you did.
The fact that you then cared for your parents was never part of the arrangements - it was simple what you did as a loving daughter.
On that basis you respectfully ***** ***** this is NOT a case where market rent is payable - you are simply continuing to care for your joint home as you always had.
You should also confirm that when the time comes you intend to sell th house to continue paying for her upkeep
I am so sorry for the gender assumption - it shows that both the genders need to move away from that!
I am certain that they do not know how long you have lived there - because if so it would not have been raised before.
The nominal rent you are paying is any repairs etc that you do using your own funds
You do not have squatters rights - there are no such thing anymore!
That should be sufficient
Just ask for me in the title of the question - I shall get it
You are welcome - I hope all goes well
