Thanks for posting. It is indeed disturbing. Haven't we seen examples of these tactics on our forum?


As Bowlingbun often says, carers and families are frequently being deprived of their legal rights. This is another serious example.
Thanks for posting this. Mum died nearly three years ago and I'm living in her home with piles of stuff everywhere. It's a real mess but I just don't clear it out. Glad I'm not alone but it's not a good place to be.
