Carla secretly purchased and renovated her grandparents’ old home, surprising them with the new home and horses. However this caused a rift with her parents who had taken her out of their will until she apologized for disobeying them.
The Black Sheep of the Family
Carla is a 35-year-old woman who grew up on a farm with seven siblings, but she never wanted to be a part of the family business and was seen as the black sheep of the family. This caused strain on her relationship with her parents.
A Secret Purchase
However, when her grandparents’ old home went up for sale, she secretly purchased it and had it fully renovated, surprising her grandparents with the new home and horses, but causing a rift with her parents who had taken her out of their will until she apologized for disobeying them.
She Was a Rebellious Teen
Carla had always felt like the odd one out in her family, as she didn’t want to be a part of the farm business and was seen as rebellious during her teenage years, causing tension between her and her parents. However, when her grandparents’ old home went up for sale, Carla saw an opportunity to finally have something that belonged to her family and offered to buy it, but her parents refused, citing her past behavior as a reason for her being irresponsible and unstable.
The House Was Hers
Undeterred, Carla found out that the house was on the market and purchased it in cash, fully renovating it over the course of two years while keeping it a secret from her family. When her grandparents’ birthday came up and they expressed a desire to visit their old home, Carla surprised them by bringing them to the newly renovated house and reuniting them with their beloved horses.
They Took Her Out of The Will!
However, Carla’s joy was short-lived, as her parents were furious when they found out that she was the new owner of the house and accused her of disrespecting them. They even went as far as to take her out of their will until she apologized for disobeying them. Carla refused to apologize, as she felt that she had done nothing wrong and had her own money, so she didn’t need their inheritance.
They Had No Idea
“My grandparents were unaware of me even asking to buy the house and had no problem with it!” Carla said. “My grandfather had a few choice words for my father that day that made him drop tears.”
A New Home
Despite her parents’ anger, Carla was happy that she was able to give her grandparents a new home and reunite them with their horses. She hoped that one day her parents would understand why she did what she did and that they could reconcile their differences.
Unsure What to Do
Carla was really torn on what to do. She thought she’d done a really good deed by keeping the home in the family instead of it going to strangers. But her parents were so angry with her. She decided to ask the internet for advice and see if she was wrong.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “you bought it fair and square and your parents are just mad they couldn’t control both you and your grandparents. I’m glad you got the house and the horses back! Your grandparents are happy and honestly maybe it’s time to go lc or NC with your rubbish parents for awhile. They’re trying to guilt trip you with their will until your bend to their demands.”
Another Internet Response
A second person commented, “What is the worst part is, your parents would rather have seen it go to complete strangers than see you have it. This way it can stay in the family for another generation and hopefully future generations to come. I can imagine your grandparents would love being able to visit their old home knowing their granddaughter is taking care of it.”
A Final Comment
This last person wrote, “I’m very curious to know how you bought a house without your parents seeing your name on the paperwork, considering how home sales actually work.”
