    Default IL situation

    We purchased my grandmas house. She went into full time care.

    Nobody said 'oh lets put furniture into storage or belongings'.

    I have kept family photos, housing documents things of importance. She was an artist so all books etc too n paintings to my mum. Plus her hosp bed.

    We sold the rest making a whole $200. Im not joking. It wasnt great furniture. We have kept one cupboard.

    I just got an email listing everything my aunty wants for my grandma. This is almost 6 months later. WTF?

    I had a new born baby packed clothes did most of what I thought she would want and now im getting calls abd texts asking for things. I am scared to upset my grandma but nobody helped and I didn't have funds pay for storage!!

    I dont know how tell them all nicely to go away uncl grandma. I wish I never bought this house she thinks everything is in same spot she left it

    Why wouldn't they mention something when the house was sold?

    That is how I felt.

    I made my dad call abd say stop hassling me. We told my grandma we donated it today (furniture) she seemed upset but I think its more that she's in a home and couldn't fit everything there.

    Umm.. I can't comment on the rest but selling her belongings and not giving her the $$ for it seems kind of dodgy, especially lying to her about it afterward. Or have I missed something?

    Why didnt u ask what they wanted u to do with ur grandmothers things right at the beginning?

    The $200 should go to your grandma. To do what she likes with it.

    Oh and if the rest is packed away and people are asking for stuff tell them u have boxed it up and they need to come and collect it and can go through it and take what they need and they need to then decide what should b done with the rest after consulting with ur grandmother.

    Best of luck

    I find it very odd that you did that without asking your grandma first and that you didnt give the $200 to her.

    I find it weird that the house wasn't empty when you moved in after buying it. Shouldn't her children be deciding what to do with her belongings before you moved in so it's vacant for you?

    Also I too think you should have asked before moving in so you gave them the chance to do what they wanted with her belongings & money gone to your grandma. Then again waiting 6 months after you moved in to ask about things is a bit late, what did they expect of you. If I'm wrong and you had asked, then ignore this.

    I would be devastated if a family member got rid of my grandmothers things. I can totally understand them being upset. It might not be worth much but the sentimental value is often huge.

    I think you should have come to an agreement regarding furniture/belongings before you moved in. You just can't get rid of someone's stuff without them knowing... And if your grandma wasn't of sound mind then her kids should have been consulted. I'm sure Judge Judy would say getting rid of/selling your grandmas stuff without approval was illegal or something...
