Reply To: I am I being too cynical…?


Is this scenario really that odd? The mother has moved elsewhere but still has this property on her hands. Letting it seems pretty reasonable in the circumstances, and given what a leap in the dark taking on a tenant can be, what better solution than to let to a family member you know well and who needs a place to live?

Emma’s suggestion of an ‘intervention’ to check on payment of rent at some point in the future seems reasonable. I really do not see what else you could ask for at this stage.
