If I'm gifting someone a home, guess what? I'm letting you know what I'm gifting. The home, not the furniture and everything else for the home. Unless I was planning to furnish the home too, which...by the way...is entirely up to me to decide.
That's my whole point. No one is manipulating me into doing anything for them, just because we're related.
A gift is not a never ending thing.
i totally agree...
Samone i dont think she "needs a home" she owns her mobile home
s/o was going to help her upgrade but now she's doing too much
i just feel that it's drama waiting to happen so i told him to look at this foreclosed home for 50k and put some walmart furniture in it. sign everything over to her and whatever she does with it, is what she does with it.
I think it's super nice that your s/o wants (and can) give his parents a home, therefore a better place to live but he needs to draw the line on how far the gifting goes.
First he needs to check how much insurance would cost for the houses he is interested. He needs to have an idea in case it does end up costing too much (a house has maintenance expenses, utilities, etc) so he should get a house that his parents can afford to maintain
They make 5k but if something happens and one of them cannot work anymore, the house will become a burden for the employed one.
Then he needs to have the talk that other members suggested, where they are aware that the insurance and bills are paid by them, not him, because the house will be in their name.
This story might not end up well a few years from now without a little chat......
