My neighbor passed away with no will according to his friend. A distant cousin has now moved in and is putting his 87 year old mother in a nursing home. The poor guy isn't even buried and their living in his house and driving his car. I assumed their going thru his possessions inside the house as well. He had no children.

It makes me ill to see these lowlifes move in

How did they get in? If they had a key they may not be as distant as you think.

All his best friends who took care of him recently were shut out by these losers.

Call your local Dept. of Human Services and find a social worker who specializes in elder abuse. There are also people the social worker can put the wife in touch with who can help keep her from being fleeced financially by these greedy losers.

Call them first thing on Monday!

I second this post. OP, I saw something similar happen to a cousin. The low life scum managed to sell off all of the guns and collectables before we were able to evict them. They left a huge mess behind: torn apart closets and over-turned drawers. It took several days to get things back to rights.

It's in the Bible: Deuteronomy 15:11 "For the scumbags will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall freely open the back of your hand..."

I'm sorry if you have lost a decent neighbor...for that deserves proper respect.

When did you get to read the WILL to know the terms? Curious ..

Just to be clear, it's the mother of the neighbor that died, right? She would be the next of kin, not some distant cousin, if your neighbor died without a will. I agree with contacting elder services in your area, and see if they can get involved.
