A 70-year-old woman is opening up about her family feuds online and how her own children are turning on her at this age.
Think along the lines of your own offspring being so selfish and it has come to an extent where they’re allegedly filing a lawsuit against her.
Now, she’s turning to the online world for help because she does not know what to do in this kind of dilemma.
The kids claim they are in dire need of money so they want the mother to give them their inheritance share. But her mother feels it might be too soon to embark on that road right now. With so many feuds arising on the subject related to this, she might soon have no choice.
The desperate widow says she is in dire need of money so she has been left with no choice but to sell off her residence. But the kids are stopping her from doing just that.
They feel like they deserve a share and by selling off the home, they just might not get that later on. Now, the mom turned to Daily Mail for help from a leading columnist called Dear Jane for some answers.
All of the mother’s kids are grown up and they have left her home alone for a long time. Therefore, living in an empty nest that is this big just does not make any sense to her.
“I can’t imagine living in this home any longer. The time has come and I feel that at this age, it’s now or never”- she continued.
The mother revealed how downsizing is the best option for her so she can save some money because no one is willing to support her. But the sound of the news left her own blood issuing a lawsuit against her, claiming she failed to take their permission as they’re also shareholders.
It’s your home and you do what’s good for you.We never know how long we will live and the profit from selling the home will take care of you.Do what’s right for you.Take Care.
You don’t owe them a darn thing ! it’s your home, your money, & your life p, they are very ungrateful ✨
How dare they. It is nothing to do with them until she is dead. They can earn their own money.
I feel awful for this poor lady, how dare her family feel that they are entitled to a share if her home, that she worked hard to get. Shame on her family, nothing in this world shocks or surprises me. If her family need money tell them to take out a loan with the bank. This lady owes them nothing. Things like this make mu blood boil, she has probably been really good to them, and now they think it is their God given right, absolutely disgusting behaviour. I really hope the judge tells them, that they need to pay their mother’s court fees etc.
Shareholders??? Did they contribute to the expenses of the home? Did they contribute to paying the taxes, insurance, or mortgage? Living in the house does not make them shareholders. Tell the kids to take a hike, sell the house and use the proceeds to take care of you. Remember, that until you are dead there is no inheritance.
It’s Moms money ….. to do as she sees fit. If the children don’t like it……. They have no choice but. To suck it up….. damn heathens.
Tell them to go and jump. It is your house and if you want to sell it it is up to you. Your children deserve NOTHING. Where the hell do they get off bullying you. I hope you sell it and spend all the money. Get a room on a cruise ship and get waited on hand and foot. You earned it. You spend it. Good luck and enjoy.xx
Sorry you are being treated like this by your children. I don’t see how they are shareholders unless you have a business.
Inheritance is for after death. They should have no legal right to your home . Unless they helped with mortgage or taxes or other bills.
I would move to change your will as you see fit and are still alive. To prevent further chaos. Shameful of them to hinder your needs .
You never know what’s round the corner for yourself ,heath etc.
You must do the right thing for yourself and your well being as it might become necessary for your own care to have the full use of YOUR OWN FINANCIAL MATTERS. Or are they going to accommodate, care for and or nurse you in your twilight years.
Seems to me like this is one of those entitlement issues..Sad but true this is all too common in this day and age. Usually the Buzzards don’t come out until someone is dead but in today’s society….Assuming that your adult children never contributed to the mortgage,utilities,groceries,insurance etc during their upbringing and ate all your food and quite possibly you paid for weddings, first car and who knows whatever else. I say stand your ground Darlin and if you feel like blessing them once you pass on then make sure you file a proper will but not a moment sooner.
Leave it all to cats home that wot I would do you owe them nothing just saying x
i agree that will wipe the smug smile off of their faces
Unless her children are listed as co- owners on the recorded deed, with each share designated per child, they have NO ownership interest. If she is the sole owner, she can do
What she pleases with HER property. If they pursue this, they should have to pay all legal fees. As unscrupulous as they sound, they might try to have her declared incompetent. So beware and prepared!!! They are entitled to exactly zero!!!! After this, it would stay that way too!
Do as you please! It’s your money. You don’t owe your kids anything!
Do as you please, it’s your money and life. You don’t owe your children anything!
I would change my Will and leave it to Charity. That will stop them from getting anything.
Did your children help you pay for the house? Did they contribute ,financially, to the upkeep of the house?No,you say? It’s yours to do with as you please.It is also your chouce whethe you wish to leave them anything in your will.Do as you please.
Get a good lawyer and find out your rights.
This is called Elder Abuse in Australia.
Her children are not entitled to anything. If she wants to leave them the house when she passes – that’s fine but they do not have any right to tell her what to do. I would suggest she get a lawyer.
You don’t owe them nothing, if it was me they wouldn’t get a damn penny.
