Dad is in assisted living, and step mom is now staying with her family as she cannot safely live alone. We're trying to decide what to do with the house. If we spend a few thousand to fix up and then rent, how do we answer the Rental income in next 12 months question on A&A form? Gross rent income? or net after expenses of getting the house ready and pay ongoing taxes, insurance, etc? Does it make any difference if the house is in Revocable Living Trust? Any insight or suggestion will be appreciated. Also, Dad has dementia and I have POA and am filling out the application with some help from Assisted Living administrator. Dad did sign the application, but doesn't understand about his finances and costs of assisted living. Reading on your site about the Fiduciary appointment has me concerned. Is there anything i can do on the initial application to minimize the delay in getting approval/benefits? By the way, total yearly medical expenses for dad and step mom exceeds current income by at least 10,000. Assets are <60,000 and House is worth <100,000. Thank, i'm so glad i found this web site tonight.
