A man recently asked for advice about how to deal with his demanding mom. He had inherited several houses from his dad, but was he right to kick his mom out of her home? Here’s what he had to say:
The Man’s Dad Had Died Young
“When I was 15, my dad died. My mom didn’t wait too long to ‘start over’ and moved her new partner in just 2 months later. My dad left everything to me and not a dime to her (they were not married). My dad’s will was so structured that she couldn’t challenge it.”
The Man’s Mother Was Not Happy About The Will
Even though the will was watertight, the man’s mom tried to interfere. She attempted to have it legally altered. When that failed, she tried to pressure her son into handing over one of the properties he’d inherited. She said it would help his stepdad feel more welcome.
The Man Couldn’t Have Shared Even If He’d Wanted To
The man’s dad must have known that his mom would try something. He included a clause in the will that meant the man couldn’t do anything with the properties until he turned 21. The properties were safe—for now.
The Man’s Stepdad Had Kids Of His Own
“This dude had kids, and my mom prioritized them to keep him happy. I mean, she wasn’t like abusive or neglectful, but she tended to favor them. They went on trips, and even if she didn’t tell me not to go, she’d say something between the lines… I’m not stupid, and I know she didn’t want me there.”
The Man’s Mom Kicked Him Out
Even though all of his father’s property belonged to him, the man had to leave his own house when he was 17. His mom told him that she couldn’t take him always fighting with his stepdad.
The Man Matured With His Grandparents
Because his mom had thrown him out, the man lived with his grandparents until he went to college. Although he was mad at his mom for what she’d done, she still frequently visited him. She said that she loved him but that things were just too tense when he lived with her.
Things Changed After Graduation
After finishing college, the man decided to make some changes. He was now old enough to have full access to his late father’s portfolio. He wanted to rent out some of the properties to help pay for further college fees. He hoped to complete a master’s degree using the income.
One Of The Houses Was Perfect For Renting
The man identified the house that he’d grown up in as having plenty of desirable qualities for renters. He decided to renovate it and get it ready for the rental market. But there was just one problem.
His Mom Wasn’t Going To Give It Up Without A Fight
The man tried to get in contact with his mom so that she could vacate the property. When he got no response, he decided to change the locks. However, when his mom and her new family got back from their vacation, all hell broke loose.
Was The Man Wrong?
His mom was furious that her son had changed the locks. She told her that she and her family needed to leave within a fortnight. Everyone was angry at him. How could he throw his own mom out onto the street? They couldn’t afford anyone else, and the stepdad’s daughter was pregnant. Had he gone too far?
People Gave Their Perspectives
One person had this to say: “As a minor, you were kicked out of your own house and made a secondary priority. As an adult, you’re now doing what you couldn’t do then. Make sure you’re doing everything legally so they can’t make things harder on you.”
However, some people thought that the man was a little hasty. “He didn’t really warn them enough, though. He should’ve put it in writing and not changed the locks until the two weeks were up. He acted out of emotion, though, not logic.”
