brap: She thinks she's "won."She will wake up tomorrow not only universally loathed as the symbol of greed but worse yet, she will wake up with a house in Ohio.
RenownedCurator: shArkh: Again.My grandmother took a particularly nasty turn of senile demnetia (violent) and shortly afterwards :| Grandpa S died.His will had signed his half over to his daughter, so she had leverage on the house. BECAUSE if she didn't have it, and Grandma S got declared senile by the government / State, we would lose all of it to them to "pay" for her declining issues and care.But because granny was in wacko-territory, we were the devils incarnate, and she made sure everyone she opened her bloody mouth to knew, even though she got to keep her care AND her money, until the day she bought it because of what we did.If the daughter's a biatchy-mcbiatchpants, then fair enough form the lynch mob. But I've been on the wrong end of this myself. I can't be this simple. If it is, well. 'murica I guess.Having witnessed similar family drama (not in my family, thank God, but in a friend's), THIS. We have no idea what's going on here, especially as there was apparently some attendant drama involving the care of an autistic son. It could be the daughter is evil. It could be that her father is a senile crank who refuses to believe that he can't care for himself. There could be disputes about where the money for the autistic son's care should come from. We're seeing so little of the story that making sweeping judgements is useless.
Mr Potter to be evicted? Unlikely.
pho75: I am shocked that you can buy a house for that little anywhere in this country. You can't buy a condo where I am for 3x that.
randomX: The daughter NEEDS to speak up here. For all we know, he molested her every day of her life and this is her way of repaying the anguist.
serial_crusher: I would be interested in hearing the daughter's side of the story. Only possible reason I could think of to do something like that is to pressure the old guy to move into the old folks home you think he needs to be in, but the fact that she initially gave him a counter-offer makes me doubt it's anything like that.She's probably got a deal with some crooked land developer who's trying to turn the whole block into upscale condos and this guy is the last hold out. Might have to call the A-Team on this one.
James!: Just because you thrust a wad of money at someone doesn't mean they have to sell you anything. This whole thing was dumb from the start
