All hell is about to break loose

January 4th, 2017 at 02:34 am

So all hell finally broke lose. I received a call from my brother's attorney yesterday, wanting to know what my intentions were regarding my father's property. First of all I thought it was weird given the fact that he represents my brother, who mind you is suing me, and I also have an attorney. He called having me on speaker, so I suspected that my brother was in his office. Needless to say I informed him to contact my attorney. What do I look like speaking with the man hired to sue me? Is this even legal?

Fast forward a hour later and I'm at my mom. My brother pulls up. My first intentions are to leave but I say no this is still your brother if he speaks at least say hello. He speaks, I say hello. I start getting my things together to leave and he starts up. Stating no one is telling him what's going on. Um duh you have council shouldn't he be speaking with you? Anyway he becomes irate, threaten me and leave. All while my mother is there not saying one word. Smh you would think she would say, this is your sister don't threaten her etc. the woman said nothing. Her and my brother are just alike, selfish and greedy. So long as they can get something out of it they won't say a word.

Long story short as PR of my father's estate I have taken possession of the truck, that my brother was told months ago to stop driving because he puts the estate as risk (e.g. Accident). Oh yeah and he parks it in such a way that I cannot come on the property. I'll be reaching out to my attorney to see if there is a way for me to take possession of the house to get it ready for sell. I'm done being nice. My mother is worried that at 57 he will have no where to live but mind you this is the same woman who told me to get the F out of her house because I left laundry in the washing machine, and I had nowhere to go. The same woman who just told my sister to get out, with nowhere to go and to our knowledge no one knows exactly why. The same woman who stop speaking to her other son because he told her you need to tell my oldest brother that he is wrong. And she's worried about a 57 year who goes to work every day has no car payment, no mortgage, no CC payments and have lived rent free for over ten years? Her excuse, he won't have anywhere to put his things. He's a hoarder. Smh

    I wonder if the attorney was trying to open a line of communication. Would the lawyers sit with the two of you together to mediate? Money is not worth losing family over. Your mother is not capable of being the negotiator. I'm sure your brother who has lived rent free is definitely worried about his future since he doesn't know how it will all shake out. Does he have the ability to buy out the other family members (getting a loan) and keeping the house?

    I think you did the right thing. He initiated suing YOU, so speaking via speakerphone with HIS attorney and him without your attorney present is just shady. If opening lines of communication was the purpose, they could have had all parties (both attorneys and you) together OR had his attorney talk to your attorney about seeing an indepdenent 3rd party mediator.

    Nope, never speak to his attorney without your attorney present. Very shady that they called you.

    Your dad sadly passed last April [2016] therefore brother has had over 8 months to re-locate and return truck to your possession. Looking forward, what are the legalities relative to BF when you realize your long term wish to buy a house? Perhaps because I'm a stranger, I see your mom in her comfort zone having met with overwhelming success as drama queen for so many years.

    I hope you are enjoying your new job and offer kudos for fully participating in their retirement plan. When do you get full vesting? Who can help you get late dad's home cleared, cleaned and staged to sell? You might check your library to understand the principles. I suggest looking for experienced realtors who specialize in the specific area. I helped my brother get mom's house ready to sell and it was a far more emotional task than I expected. We initially chose to hold a series of yard sales to sell the enormous quantity of stuff mom neatly squirrelled away. That was a horrid decision, too fraught with emotion. DB okayed an estate auctioneer pick up the stuff and sell - much more manageable.

    Hi all!

    I don't think my brother's attorney was calling to open up a line of communication, he told my attorney that he called me by accident. That was a lie.
    The new job is going along, I won't be fully vested until four years but hey some money is better than nothing, you all taught me that.

    We are finishing up the probate period and getting ready to sell the house. Thank God my dad left me in charge and I can force sell it. We have a realtor in mind.

    It is too bad you can't talk to each other rather than sue each other. Is this what your father would have wanted? I hope you won't have any regrets when it is all over.
