@MsBrooklynA: They don’t want you to move and your Future Mother-In-Law cries about it but they won’t fix the roof?!?!?!? They want their son and future wife living in a moldy house????

That is just bizarre.

I don’t have any good advice aside from keep them at an arm’s distance. Something is not right there.

@MsBrooklynA: I’m so sorry! That sucks! I feel you on the princessy SIL. I’ve got one too and it drives me up a wall and back down again 😛

WTF? I would have SO tell them you are looking at apartments and are hoping to move out asap. When she does the crying bit etc he needs to tell her that SHE is tearing the family apart and he is not going to continue living with his future wife in an unsafe house. He also should tell them flat out that this is ruining their relationship and that it will take a long time to fix it if ever. Maybe that will wake them up to the fact that they are losing their son.

Do you have family or friends you both could stay with for the time being? I can tell you for sure mold=no good for anyone so you really shouldn’t be staying there, it will be horrible for your health. Move out asap.

@Treasure43: Me too. SIL practically prances around with a crown on… (ok, that’s a bit harsh, but seriously)

@MsBrooklynA: The worst part is that you know if SIL were in the house and renting from them, they would fix it in a heartbeat.

My future in-laws blatantly play favorites with their kids and it drives me CRAZY. And when I see them, it’s so much harder for me to be super nice because I just hate how they’ve hurt their son.

@PinkPinstripes: When SIL frustrates me from now on I’m going to picture her prancing through a field with a crown on. It will make me smile 🙂

Depending on your state, there are regulations for mold in indoor air.  If your state does not, a landlord has a duty to maintain a habitable premises. I would pay a lawyer to send them a letter demanding the repairs (get an estimate by at least two reputable vendors). If you have renter’s insurance I would go to them for damage to personal property. If there are any medical claims, you would have to go thru your own health insurance company. I would sue them for any out of pocket expsenses and look for another apartment. Good luck

@jumpthegun: if there is no contract or proof that they are paying tenants… then they are probably screwed.

@rosworms: Well hopefully if they aren’t legally considered paying tenants, there is still a course of action with the mold being a health hazard for anyone to live with.

IT does NOT matter that there is not a contract. That means you are on a 30 day lease that renews every month you decide to stay. You can proove you are paying rent by showing canceled checks. If you contacted the city you could pay the city your rent (refusing to give it to your IL), until they fix the roof. That way they can’t come after you for not paying because you are… but they can’t have the money until the roof is fixed.

Sending good luck your way. It’ll all work out in the end. But, get the hell outta there. ASAP!

What a horrible situation to be in.

At this point, one thing is obvious: they’re not going to fix the roof.  And most likely, they’re not going to pay to replace your stuff.

You’re going to stay with your Fiance, and those will always be his parents.  I think rather than start a war, or start a fight with your Fiance about his parents… just move out.  Write this off as a life lesson and move on.
