Thanks for your second reply!! Now I feel like I’m in the loop and why my brother the trustee is dragging his feet.
My mother had a stroke and as a result brain surgery, roughly 10 years ago. Then rehab, nursing homes and skilled facilities. In the process all of her assets were depleted except for her house which was protected by the trust.
In the mean time my brother, the trustee has had quite a few emotional, legal and financial problems mostly relating to his divorce after 3 children and 20 years of marriage.
He has an alcohol problem and has been arrested a couple of times and filed 2 bankruptcies. He doesn’t open his mail or deal with anything that has to do with finances.
Thanks to you I have a place to start and a much better understanding of this process. I will be putting in a call to the attorney that drew up the trust.
I’ll keep you posted…
