An elderly relative of my wife, presently residing in NYC, owns 2 burial plots in Israel. It appears that he has changed his mind and wants to be buried in New York. His son-in-law, a guy you would be wary to shake hands with, handles the elder's financial affairs. This son-in-law, says that the Israeli plots can not be sold by the elder. My wife and I highly doubt the son-in-laws statement and think that after the elder passes away and is buried in New York (which the elder wants), that this son-in-law will sell the plots of the elder and keep the monies for himself. My wife has an interest in this because the elder is her father and he wants to live his remaining years with us in Florida. This son-in-law over the years has lived a wealthy life style, hardly working himself, using the old man's money. My wife's dad is a wonderful, well liked man, and we just want to see that he has appropriate care. The care he has gotten under his other son-in-law, is mostly neglect, and not wanting to spend any of the elder's money on the elder. Would appreciate your input Lou. Can my wife's dad legally sell the burial plots he owns in Israel?
If any other member from BBI has any info that can help us, we would appreciate it.
P.S. I'm retired and financially doing well so whatever money he has left will go for his use and later, if any funds are left, will be shared among family members who best can use it. Thanks to Lou and rest of BBI.
