A recent case follows what she calls “the granny flat situation”. An elderly woman was told by her daughter to sell her home and move in with her, with the $400,000 proceeds going towards the building of a granny flat and other renovations.

There was no written agreement. At some point, the relationship broke down and the elderly woman was told to move out – with no money and no other home to go to.
