Inlaws moving in with us ....

Post by sweetpea » Mon Sep 26, 2016 7:12 am

My 90 yr old inlaws have been talking about going into a care home for a year or so but they still have some independence and with the 2 of them their money would only last 3 years and they werent guaranteed to share a room sign_omg.gif
We have a detached annexe at the bottom of our garden that we were living in and renting our house out ...we made the decision to offer them to live in the annexe and we would move into the house ...so in may we moved into the house , changed the bathroom into a shower room for them ...they have sold their house and we thought they would be in and settled by 2nd week of September. ...their solicitor went on a 4 week holiday :smiley-rolleyes010.gif: so things are now 6/8 weeks behind. ....its been stressful for them as it as ,they have lived in their home 62 years .....
It will all be worth it though. ...
Tried to post this in general chat but was unable to ...

Hoping they will be moving the end of this month ...they have had problems as they weren't registered on the land registry as being the owners of the house ..... :smiley-rolleyes010.gif: even though they have lived there 62 yrs the deeds apparently no longer mean proof of house ownership .... sign_omg.gif
Anyway hoping the solicitor has got his finger out and sorted it xx

It's going to be tough for your Mum-in-law as she's lived in her previous house for so long; there's so many memories tied up in the bricks and mortar and it isn't just a matter of the finances involved when you consider this sort of move, is it?

But at least you'll be near at hand to provide help and assistance when required which is going to be a comfort to you all. How's your father-in-law - is he home yet and how are your in-laws getting on in their new home?

Dad came home yesterday and is doing remarkably well ....they are still unpacking ...i think the stress made mum emotional ....they only lived at the top of our road so they havent moved far !!!!
Their house was a 2 bed semi ....the garden was dads pride and joy .....but he hasnt been able to maintain the house and the Garden was becoming harder to upkeep.....
They are now in the bottom of our garden in a self contained 2 bed detached bungalow annexe .....its where we lived for 11years ...we took the ceilings out in the lounge diner and made vaulted ceilings. ...put in a glass wall with double doors ...had a kitchen handmade ....it was our dream home ....but inlaws need more help and the cost of a rest home for both of them would have eaten their money in 2 years.....they are independent with personal care and day to day but if they get less independent we will be here for them ......with moving solicitors fees and estates agents cut ... (house sold for £250,000)the fees came to £4,100 ......i thought was very good.......
They both seem very very happy love4.gif
