Legal and Delay Costs Imposed for Failure to Vacate

Claim for compensation for care of parents by one of their sons was denied for lack of “clear, direct, precise and convincing” evidence of an agreement for compensation, but claim for family exemption was allowed even though the decedent had been declared to be incapacitated and was moved out of the house she shared with her son. Both legal fees and costs resulting from a delay in the sale of the house were imposed on the son for failing to vacate the premises, and the son’s objections to the account and petition for adjudication were dismissed as untimely. Harper Estate, 12 Fid.Rep.3d 319 (O.C. Delaware 2021), aff’d 2307 EDA 2021 (Pa. Super. 7/19/2022) (non-precedential).
