Nursing Homes and Elder Law: Too many times, people get misinformation about moving to a nursing home and what will happen to their estate. Baytown elder law attorney Pi-Yi-Mayo, on the Party Line program recently , said many times people hear misinformation from friends, family, or others who are untrained on the subject. Mr. Mayo said it is vital for people to get their advice, not just from an attorney or someone who claims to know the law for senior citizens, but someone who really specializes in the subject. Mr. Mayo urges that we never rely on someone that you are not paying to look after your best interests . He said even those at nursing homes have no fiduciary duty to look out for your best interests. This is a technical part of the law and having someone working for you that works in that special area of the law is essential.


Contact with the Lender: In times of economic downturn, many homeowners find themselves tight on money and not sure what to do if they can’t make payments on their home mortgage. Brooks Hiller, owner of Heritage Mortgage in Dayton , was a guest on a recent Party Line .He said it is crucial to maintain a relationship with your lender. Brooks Hiller said there is a misconception that lenders cannot wait to foreclose on your home if you miss a payment. Actually, Mayo said banks are not making loans so they can foreclose on you, and many times the lenders view foreclosure as a last resort. Brooks Hiller , a veteran mortgage executive, said the most important thing you can do, if you feel you will miss a mortgage payment , is to contact the lender and let them know what’s going on and that you may miss a payment.
