OP you are coming across as aggressive in your replies., might want to chill before hitting the keyboard
Why do you hope it's not possible? Do you want the person to be thrown out on the street and left to die? Would that get your jollies off for you?
Person A has a mortgage but is in a situation where they will likely be on disability benefit for the rest of their lives. The person has no immediate family to speak of.
Some different scenarios:
1) Person B pays their mortgage for them for the rest of their life
2) Person B buys the house and lets person A live there for the rest of their life for the HAP rent. (There is no equity in the house, at least not when other debts are paid)
3) Person A stops paying mortgage and drags out through the courts until evicted and dragged (or wheeled) out by bailiffs by their hair. Then gets put into either a hospice or some other state provided care
Scenario 1 is neither sustainable long term or realistic. person A and Person B are not related and B has never lived in the house etc.
Strange the amount of sneery people
who would seem to prefer scenario 3 so that a person who is already dealing with a lot could have the last of their dignity stripped away.
Uncivil words removed.
