Sharing a Home
My husband, two teens, dog, cat and I are moving into my mom's home. She is 81 and is in good health and active, but her home is too much for her to maintain. She is thrilled that she can remain in her home and loves having the life (activity & noise) that we will bring back into the home. My kids do not have to change school, etc.
What advice can you offer about understandings and any arrangements we should make.
I've asked my brother to come to the home and photograph/video her items, etc. so that there will be no question on what belongs to her and what items are ours. I'd hate to have anyone think I helped myself to great-grandfater's pocketwatch or anything. And we've asked her to get a home apprasial so that we can have an idea on improvements we make to the home and possible home value.
I welcome any and all advice.
