Guardianship and Adoption

Home / My mother’s mental state has been declining over the last year and recently her younger brother was nominated by the family court to act as her guardian. He has just discovered that a few weeks prior to this my mother signed a “gift agreement” in which she transferred all her rights to her apartment to my sister, a divorcee, who has lived with her for the last few years and helped look after her. What can be done ?

The legal guardian can apply to the family court for the cancellation of the “gift agreement”. Clearly, medical evidence will have to be provided to show that your mother was not mentally capable of entering into the gift agreement.
