Ok...there are bigger issues here than the one I will ask (you will probably see what I mean), but for now, we'll leave it at this question.
My grandfather died on New Year's Eve (some of you probably remember). My G-Ma is doing relatively well still, although her alzheimers shows itself more and more each day.
My brother has been helping my grandparents more than ANYBODY in the family for at least a few YEARS. Keeps up with their meds makes sure they take them right, drives them around when they need it, etc.... He's a good guy, my bro.
Well, I remember once asking my G-ma if she's "taken care of Matt" in the will. She said yes, although after talking to my brother lately, he mentioned in passing that the will now leaves EVERYTHING to her two remaining sons (our uncles). Frankly, I don't trust either one of them.
My brother has been buying the land from my grandparents for some time. He just pays them instead of bank, I believe. I'm not sure how they have it worked out exactly, but knowing my grandparents, its probably all unofficial. They probably just planned to sign the deed over when he paid it or something, nothing more.
Well, if my g-ma dies before he pays off (and almost surely she will), what will happen? I plan to talk to my g-ma and get her to change the will, but right now one of her sons is her "power of attorney". I hope that if she tells him she wants to leave Matt's land to him, he'll help her change the will (but I'm not betting my life on it).
So if he doesn't help her change the will, what will happen to Matt? Will whatever contract they have still hold (assuming they even have it written anywhere)?
I could get more info from my brother, but I know he does it out of love for grandparents and is not "expecting" to be rewarded. But I hate to see him getting screwed by uncles when he's done more for the grandparents they have for their own parents.
Any thoughts on what will happen? Can uncles change contract (if there is any)? If its all under the table can they void the contract altogether (nixing all money he's paid for last 10 years)? Can my g-ma do anything legal herself right now (being she's diagnosed with alzheimers and uncle#1 is power of attorney)?
