DEAR JEANNE AND LEONARD: I want out of the lakeside vacation cottage that I inherited from my grandfather. He left it to me a couple of years ago, with the request that I let my cousins use it, too. Well, between property taxes, utilities and maintenance costs, the place is very expensive to own.
DEAR JEANNE AND LEONARD: My grandson’s shyness is causing a problem. In May I gave him two checks, one for his birthday and one for his college graduation. When a month went by and the checks weren’t cashed, I emailed him and asked that he please cash them and let me know when he’d done so. He’s never replied, and the checks have never been cashed.
My husband has been estranged from his mother for two years. She and his brother live together in the family home, and the two of them have quite an expensive lifestyle (for example, they take luxury vacations all over the world). A lot of this is paid for by the reverse mortgage my mother-in-law took out on her house a few years ago. If she winds up going into debt, is there any way it could become my husband’s responsibility?
