I posted recently on my frustration with my brother. The thread wouldn’t allow me to add any further comments or respond, so I am posting a brief update.
To cut a long story short, my Father died in October, it was his dearest wish (supported by the whole family) that my husband and I bought my brothers out to keep the house in the family. My younger brother is not working at present and for this and other reasons he carried the lions share of supporting Dad. Being very practical and having the time to do so, he offered to clear the house, but has dragged his heels. I recognised that clearing the house was part of his way with dealing with his grief.
In response to some of your comments, my brother didn’t live with Dad, no way would I have ‘turfed him out’. I am keen to progress things, but actually this is motivated substantially by wanting to help my brother get back on the property ladder. Once everything is sorted (and I know it will take time) my brother will just about have enough for a good deposit as he would love to buy the house he currently rents. We are being hammered with eye watering interest and the more quickly my husband and I sell the two houses we own and pay off the remaining mortgage on Dad’s house, the more money will be available for younger brother’s deposit. Obviously we have to wait for probate etc. I had just wrapped everything all up together in my head and although I thought some of your comments were a bit harsh, it gave me a nudge to relax and step back which I did. Younger brother and I are good, just a storm in a teacup and I needed to vent. Thank you for taking the time to reply ?
