Legal Answers
Q. Medicaid estate recovery
A: If you sell the house now, Medicaid cannot take any of the sales proceeds, since your father-in-law is still alive. He can then spend the money as he sees fit on items for himself. Once he passes, then technically, Medicaid has a claim against the remaining funds from the sale. However, with some good planning while he is still alive, an elder law attorney can help you legitimately avoid paying Medicaid back, if you sell the house while he is still alive. If he keeps the house and then you sell it after he passes, then Medicaid can make a claim against the house sale proceeds at the closing.
Q. My sister is in my mom's will to inherit the house. Can the bank take the house from her to pay off the mortgage?
A: If your sister intends to move into the house and make it her primary residence, then she is entitled by law to assume the mortgage. The law I am referring to is called the Garn-St. Germain Act of 1982 and is found here: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/12/1701j-3 The relevant subsection is (d)(3). The law provides an exception to the usual "due on sale" clause, which would normally accelerate the mortgage and cause it to be immediately payable. The law provides relief to families who need the house to live in, but may not be able to refinance, etc.
Q. Can an adult in a nursing also be the power of attorney of another individual in a nursing home?
A: He can be the Power of Attorney if he is competent.
