I cared for my father with no help
My father asked me to move into his home and be his caregiver. i have two sisters who were unable to do it and since I was newly divorced - I moved in with my father and took care of him. He was using a walker and wasn't able to do a lot of things for himself. He went from a walker to a wheelchair and got progressively worse. I lived with my father for two years and took care of him 24/7 with no help from anyone - not even my two sisters. My only help was Hospice which was available a week before dad passed away. My father died from Parkinson's and a weak heart. I have an abdominal hernia from lifting my dad which was operated on once but the hernia returned. Its not a small hernia. I look like I'm pregnant. Anyway to get to my point - I'm living in my fathers house because I have no where else to go. I pay the bills on the house. My father left his house to me and my two sisters. My uncle is the executor and wants to sell the house to settle the estate. He doesn't know anything about being a real estate agent and just stuck a for sale sign on the lawn. He wants the commission for selling dads house. My uncle and sisters want to kick me out of dads house because I don't pay any rent even though I pay the bills on the house. I don't feel I should be paying rent because I took care of dad with no help from anyone. Its not my fault the housing market is slow and my uncle doesn't know how to be a real estate agent. They taped an eviction letter to the door of dads house and they are telling me I have a month to move out or they will take me to court at my expense. Can they do that to me?
