    You are so lucky. My parents house is still sitting there, no one would or will cooperate on clearing it out. I have seriously thought of getting Teacher Terry to go down there with me for a week and just doing it. If I weren't afraid of my litigious brother, I would.

    @Tybee how long has your parents' house been sitting there? Is your brother in charge of the house / estate?

    It has been empty now two years, and he is in charge, but they are still living.

    Tybee that’s terrible. I have done this numerous times and I can be a fast decluttering machine). From what you have said about your brother I think you are right that he might take legal action. You would think he would want the house sold in case he needs the money to pay for your parent’s care.

    Yeah. I wouldn't do it, but I know you would be a decluttering machine!

    That is terrible. In addition to possibly needing the money from selling the house to pay for care, the house continues to incur costs like ultilities, taxes and insurance reducing what is available for the parents' needs. Makes no sense but then again, it doesn't. IME seems to serve some need in the sibling who's in charge.
