Family Living in Your Property But Not Helping To Pay The Bills

Family living in your property but not helping to pay the bills? 

It’s crazy…

…you try to do something generous, something kind, something selfless, and your family doesn’t even OFFER to help with bills (or they do… but they don’t follow through). 

It’s frustrating…

At Flavortown Properties, we’ve worked with TONS of people in exactly your situation. Here’s the advice we usually give. 

Create a Contractual Agreement — Business and family rarely mix. And when you’re the one paying mortgage on a house that other family members are living in, that can create bitterness and frustration. Creating a contract can help to clarify expectations. You could put clauses that require family members to do certain things if they want to keep living there (keep it clean, pay for damages, do yard work, etc).

Have an Intervention — If things have gotten really bad, it might be time to have a sit-down with your family. Be honest; tell them that you simply can’t afford to keep paying the mortgage on your own when they’re living the house. An honest discussion can go a long way with reasonable people. 

Offer a Grace Period — If you absolutely need your family to start chipping in, but you don’t want to be mean about it, offer them a grace period. Tell them that they have 2 more months to free-load, but then they have to start chipping in a certain percentage of monthly payments or they have to find somewhere else to live. 

Sell The Home — Sometimes, the best course of action, if things have gone on for a long time, is to sell the property. And rather than dealing with all the hassle of finding an agent, repairing and cleaning the home, and then listing on the MLS, you can sell to a professional home buyer like ourselves. We can close within just 2 weeks and we’ll pay cash for your property. Give us a call at (614) 756-6497 if you’re interested!

Thanks for taking the time to check out our website. We are local Columbus residents that focus on buying properties off-market (with no commissions) for cash. We are not “flippers” or “investors” looking to pay pennies on the dollar. We are local Buckeyes with families and we focus on buying rental properties. This allows us to make fair market value offers based on comparable sales and needed repairs. We are a small, but mighty team that thrives on helping others and works toward a common goal that provides a positive outcome for everyone.
