Mother displaced by fire… ‘renting’ to her while she lives with me

My mother’s house caught fire and she is now displaced from her house. She is now living with me temporarily. I was advised by the agent and the adjuster that with her “loss of use” I should charge her rent to cover the amount my expenses will go up since the insurance company would be paying all this if she rented a home if I didn’t have any room.

I was advised by the adjuster to make sure what I charge her covers “a lot” more than her costs she reported for her utilities (i.e. if she said her utilities were $500/mo. I shouldn’t “just” charge her $550.) He suggested a number in the $1000-$1500 range.
