Okay, this might get a little confusing. I hope it doesn’t, but if it does, just ask me to clarify and I will be glad to!
FFIL and FMIL own two rental properties, besides their own house. Before FSIL (L) met and had a baby with my cousin, she lived in one of the rental properties with a friend. They NEVER paid rent and they absolutely destroyed the house and furniture inside (it came furnished). Eventually, L moved out of there and left her parents to clean up the mess. A while later, when L got pregnant, her parents told her she could move into their other rental property because it was a lot bigger (they have amnesia when it comes to their children). Well, L was living at my aunt and uncle’s house at the time her son was born. Because my aunt and uncle’s house was insufficient for all of them, L offered to let my aunt, uncle, and cousins move in at FIL’s large rental property with her.
Last year, after L moved into the big house with my aunt and uncle, FFIL started remodeling the neighboring house (the one that L and her friends trashed years ago). FI and I were starting to discuss getting engaged at that time, so I figured we might rent the second, smaller property from FFIL when it was ready. Well, my dreams were immediately shattered when L broke up with my cousin. She then demanded that her parents “rent” the other house out to her so she could move out. Knowing her track record, and knowing they won’t get rent money from her, FFIL and FMIL agreed to let L move back into the smaller house.
About a month ago, we found out FFIL was buying a third rental property on the same street as the other two. I was so excited because I just knew FI and I would be able to get the place. I expressed my desire to rent it out to FFIL, at one point. I liked the idea of living across the street from my aunt and uncle. It seemed perfect and while it was never set in stone that FI and I would be the ones to get the place, we knew that it would be available in August. Ever since then, I’ve been getting little things so that we’d be ready to move in. Like dishes and stuff like that.
Well, tonight, FSIL (E) came into FILs’ kitchen and announced that she intended on moving into the new rental property and that she’d already talked to FFIL about it. I was perplexed! This girl is a useless, good for nothing liar. She has, in the past, supplemented her income by selling drugs. The people she surrounds herself with are losers who steal and commit crimes. Wtf? FMIL and FFIL know that FI and I are actively looking for a place of our own. They know that our wedding is a little less than a year away. They know that we’d pay our rent and take good care of the rental property, whereas neither of their daughters would.
I just don’t know what to think. In the end, it is their house. If they want to give it to their daughter to destroy, let em at it. But, I just thought it was pretty much implied that FI and I would be moving in there. I guess it really isn’t a major huge deal. We’ll just find somewhere else to live. Things just would have been a lot easier with family as a landlord.
