If Helen met a sudden demise I suspect there would be all sorts of messes to sort out, if the chaotic state of her home is a reflection of her life in general!imagine how many bin bags you’d need to declutter her house.
@Gothgirl1990 glad you’ve got yourself legally covered. Through both my work and with friends I’ve seen people end up in some right messes when a partner died and there were no legally binding protections put in place. Never underestimate how badly some people will behave when there’s money involved! A friend of mine ened up having to fight for his home and custody of his own child when his partner died very suddenly because they’d never got round to putting his name on the mortgage despite living together for years. He had always had a good relationship with her parents, was a good partner and father, but that didn’t stop them trying to put him out of the house and get custody of his child.
