What to do if my mother has a personality disorder and we decided it would be a good idea for me to be in charge of her assets?

We want to make sure I own the land, house and receive her checks so I can make sure she is taken care of. How do I go about doing this?

I am so sorry for your situation. I would speak with an attorney as soon as you can about being appointed as the conservator of your Mother's estate and her legal guardian. As for transferring ownership to yourself discuss the legality of that with the attorney given her mental state.  Maybe create a trust for her benefit and transfer the assets.  Good luck.
