Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Does your mother still have mental capacity?
is she able to get out and see a solicitor?
can you arrange for a solicitor to visit her?
Given that he has created a Deed of Trust that states that he gets the house in the event of her death it is unlikely that your brother intends to play fair and share the equity with you and your other sibling.
That being the case it is important that your mother gives a clear statement about what happened and what her wishes are.
This needs to be dealt with by a solicitor - and there also needs to be a medical report confirming that your mother does have mental capacity.
This can then be used to challenge your brother after her death if need be.
Please ask if you need further details
