My question involves real estate located in the State of: Pa.
My wife's mother is 80 years old and brother's name was added to her Mother's house ("quit claim deed") About 4 years ago due to her Father being put in an VA Home.Then 18 months ago her brother was made POA by his Mother.My wife's father has since passed away. We have recently found out that he has been using her 3 credit cards and has also had her write 2 checks out in the amount of $8500 which she doesn't remember why she even wrote the checks out, he cashed the checks because we have the cancelled checks that were made out to him. We can not get a straight answer from him. There was also a vehicle lease which was in his mother's name that was to run out soon but he went and got another new vehicle still in his mother's name, she signed nothing and didn't want to be on another lease.All total he has put his mother over $40,000 in debt ...Her mother does own the house which has been paid for for many years.
my question is (1) can his name be removed from the house if he refuses to do so...(2)Can he be charged in this matter with Elderly Abuse? My wife is POA now , her mother's choice
Thanks for your time...........
