A Single Mother Faces a Dilemma When She Writes Her Will and Realizes Her Only Asset is Her Home, Which She Wants to Leave to One Daughter to Live In

A single mother of three daughters, Anna, Bella, and Clara, faces a dilemma when her eldest daughter asks for her help in buying a house, but her only asset is her own house, which she cannot risk mortgaging since she has very little income, causing tension between the pair.

A Risky Request

In her sixties, a single mother of three daughters, Anna, Bella, and Clara, is facing a difficult situation. Anna, her eldest daughter, has requested her help in buying a house, but the mother’s only asset is her own house, which she cannot risk mortgaging since she has very little income.

This has caused tension between them. Bella, her second daughter, has a small mortgage and is financially stable, while Clara, her youngest daughter, lives with her and works part-time but is not good with money. Anna and Clara do not get along, which complicates matters further.

She Wrote Her Will

The mother recently wrote her will, designating Bella as the sole executor, and dividing her estate into thirds, with one part going to Anna and two parts to Bella, while Bella would be responsible for looking after Clara with what would be Clara’s third.

The mother also added a caveat that the house cannot be sold as long as Clara wishes to live in it, which delays any inheritance to the other two daughters. The mother is worried about Clara ending up homeless, but the lawyer has warned her that this will make life difficult for Bella, and Anna thinks the situation is unfair.

Is She Being a Jerk?

The mother is unsure whether she is being a jerk and doesn’t know what to do to ensure Clara’s well-being.

She Apologized

After receiving some helpful messages, the mother called Bella and apologized for putting her in a difficult situation. They discussed the issues, and Bella suggested that she would be able to let Clara know when it was no longer sustainable to maintain the property, and the house would have to be sold.

More Capable Than Everyone Thinks

Bella also said that she doesn’t expect any inheritance and would be happy for everything to go to Clara since she needs it more. Bella thinks that Clara is more capable than the mother gives her credit for, but she needs support to stay on track. They plan to get more advice and involve Clara in the discussion.

The Internet Responded

This person commented, “So you’re basically making Bella pay property tax on a house she doesn’t live in, makes no income from, and will likely have to provide for the person living in it — without leaving her any money to help do this. You’ve just made Bella into Clara’s mother for the rest of Clara’s life. You’re a jerk.”

Another commenter posted, “I very much doubt Clara will be able to financially keep that house up, or be responsible enough to do so – you’ve made Bella into her keeper. What if Clara just decides to stay for the rest of her life? Much better if the house is sold, and Bella helps Clara find something permanent with low upkeep. This is going to 100% turn into an ongoing fight between all of them over selling the house.”

A Final Internet Comment

This last poster wrote, “It is totally unfair to prevent anyone from selling the house as long as Clara wants to live there without making her responsible for taxes, maintenance, and other costs associated with the house. You basically force the two sisters to pay for Clara’s housing without any financial responsibility for her. Let them sell the house, split everything in three parts and put Clara‘s amount in a trust if you are concerned that she will spend it.”
