About £600 .. give or take. Sorry forgot to tell you that!
The problem is that my mother has bladder cancer and the operations are quite expensive... she would like to free up some cash and move to somewhere smaller and not have any money worries. My sister seems to bully her quite a lot and sends her to 'her room' which is a bit rich since she owns the lion's share of the house! Does things to the house without asking my mother and expects her to help foot the bill.... all a bit worrying. My mother has her jewellery 'in the loft' and keeps asking for it... they seem reluctant to do anything. My sister says that she sign the house over to her.. but I don't think my mother quite trusts my sister. My sister has seen a solicitor who has told her that 'they' are allowed a bigger share of the house... Mummy worried...can this be so? Meanwhile can she force them to sell...( dont think she would ) or cant they raise a mortgage and buy her out..? They are four working adults and she is an 81 year old pensioner. She pays 25 per week towards bills and Ive told to start writing things down...
So... can my sister take more than 2/7th of the house because the family have now lived there for years or is my mother safe in the knowledge that she still legally has 5/7th of the house..? Could this be contested?
