I have a house that's paid for in North Carolina where I just pay for the property taxes every month. It's a 3 bedroom, approx. 2500 sq. ft and very clean. It's 15 years old. I inherited it from my grandmother when she passed. Her insurance paid it off. I don't like North Carolina too tough so I didn't stay there too long when she died. I only stayed there for 1 year and moved back home to NY and then to GA.
It hasn't been rented out, but is kept up by my BIL who lives in NC. It's actually move in ready.
We were thinking about renting it out to get extra money for our house, but since we don't need extra money, I figured that we could just have my dsd and her mother stay there rent-free. All she would have to do is pay the utilities and get fixed whatever SHE breaks. That does not mean she is to pay for any maintenance problems from the house itself. Of course we would be responsible for that.
But I'm thinking that if we do this and the child is still not cared for and she says she needs more money, the judge would see that her housing is paid for, she receives CS, has a paid for car, as well as all the other expenses that are paid for my dsd and will wonder what she needs an increase for.
But in actuality, it will benefit my dsd. She won't be living in an apartment, she'll have a backyard to play, instead of in the street or parking lot and it will leave more money from her mother to help give her what she needs, *hopefully*.
Do you think this would help? It was a thought and not written in stone.
What else is there for us to do.
It's just a thought
