He Took Care of His Parent’s Bills and Health When They Were Dying, but When His Siblings Got Most of the Inheritance, He Was Livid

A man recently shared a story online about how he took care of his parents and all their bills when they were sick. However, his parents gave his siblings the lion’s share of the estate, leaving him hurt and vengeful. Here’s what he had to say.

The man wrote, “This is a messy situation all around. Sometimes, I feel like my actions are justified, while at other times, I feel like I’m just plain wrong.”

“My brothers, sisters, and I do not have a great relationship. We’re all low- or no-contact with each other,” he added. “I have a great job that pays very well while they’re barely making the minimum wage or living off their spouses.”

The man’s parents got sick. He took care of them during their last days. He paid for bills, groceries, home repairs, and even his parent’s funerals. None of his siblings were in a position to help.

Minimal contribution

His siblings visited, but they never contributed to the care of his late parents or the taxes and maintenance of the family home. He covered everything.

The will

He knew that his parents had a will, but they’d never discussed the details. When his father died, he left everything to his mother. However, when she passed, he was in for a shock.

Unfair split

He assumed that the split would be made equally between the children. Instead, the majority of the estate was left to his siblings. The man was given a 5% minority ownership of the house.

His mother wrote a letter to all the children. She wrote that she’d left him so little because he didn’t need it while his struggling siblings were in dire need of the money.

Soon, his shock turned to hurt. He’d done so much to care for his parents. He understood his mother’s position, but it still stung.

Selling up

His siblings wanted to sell the house straight away. The value of the home was about $750,000. To complicate matters, they couldn’t afford to pay the tax on the house, or on the inheritance, or for the maintenance of the property.

Buyout

The man’s siblings can’t afford to buy out his 5% share of the property either. They are begging the man to sell or buy out their share.

Not necessary

The man was comfortable. He didn’t need the 5%. His siblings said they needed the money for new cars or braces for their children, but he was unmoved. Instead, he’s letting them stew.

Was he in the right?

The man’s wife told him that he was taking the situation way too far. However, he felt like 5% was an insult after everything he did. He doesn’t want the money, and he’s prepared to let the place collapse. He wrote to an online forum to seek a second opinion.

The internet responded

One poster declared, “Your mom left a poor thanks for all your help, but it’s not their fault. And you know they need the money.”

While another said, “As much as you’re angry, you should honor your mom’s wishes and let them sell the house.”
