Ownership of Home
A gentleman aged 95 had brought up six sons, and helped the first five to buy their own homes. He had lived for some years with the sixth son and his wife, and relations were strained. Their house was coowned with the father, who would not pass on his share, as he had done for the others.
The father spoke only a rare Indian language, so all discussions with him had to be through an interpreter, who was excellent. Agreement was reached whereby, with a cash adjustment, the sixth son would own his own home, the father could go to live with his favourite son, and the Stannah chair lift and other disabled living aids could be transferred.
