hi please could you let me know your views on my problem i have a brother who has the sum of 26.000 save up 16.000 of which is my mums left over from her pension and works pension he has saved it up and put in his bank book in the 4 yrs he has been mums carer, i know this as he told me so.

He as allways lived with mum as he never married she has looked after him for 51 yrs, mum is 84 and is very frail and her memory isnt good. when he became her carer he was unemployed and had been for at least 5yrs before that,

I help out as much as i can by cleaning mums house doing her washing and getting her medication my brother has a carer come in 3 times a day to wash and changed her. in which i payed for that for 2 and a half years as he said he could not afford it. then i found out he had told me lies and he could all along. I have worked out mums bills gas electric council tax ect that have to be paid from her pension and works pension ect and after all the bills are paid he has 80 a week left over. (which he saves in HIS BANK BOOK MUM HAS NO MONEY ) plus he has her carers allowance of which he has left after paying the carers the sum of 48 a week plus his own carers allowance of about 36 and 84 the state pays him, to buy his food with. mum does not eat anything she lives on ensuresfood drinks which she gets free from the doctors.

Mum wants him to live in the house when she dies which i agree with her as it is her wishes, but my brother seems to think he is intitled to the house and all her money for looking after her i dont agree and mum has not made a will, her house will be spilt 50 50.because of this,

I have suggested to my brother that that he pays me 12% ie 12.000 of the house in cash lump sum when mum dies god rest her sole (house at the moment is worth 100.000) and say 18% of the house value in monthly payments of 50 a month until payed off ( work out as that time that would mean i would own 30% of the house and he would own 70% and he would still be able to live in the house and keep all mums money. He does not agree with this and thinks its not a fair offer. What do you out there think is it fair or not. .

Fortunately for me, my Mom decided all of that before she got sick. In your case, though I'm not familiar with the laws there, unless your Mum decides otherwise, it makes sense to me to let the government divide everything when she goes. it's your brother's problem if he has to sell the house. Your offer to your brother sounds very reasonable, but, I'm not sure the legality of you two making agreements about your Mum's assets while she's living. If Mum's of sound mind it might be a good time to get her to nail down the details.
