George asks…

my new boyfriend wants me to move in with him should i?

Ok heres the situation, i met this guy in the apartments i live in. His sister lives right across the street from my townhome im renting. He is such a nice guy and we have soo much in common but he is 42 yrs old and im only 28 yrs old. We are both going through divorce court but he was actually married and im just fighting with my ex boyfriend over custody and visitation issues. He tells me that he likes me alot and that he wants to take care of me and my two boys that i have from another relationship. He makes good money because his income is about $1200 a week and he owns a nice home which has two extra bedrooms that my two boys could occupy. I was thinking of moving in with him because im struggling right now as a single mother paying bills and rent and trying to buy extra stuff for the house and for the kids my income is ssi afdc and child support totaling at $1400 a month and rent is only $340 a month because i have section 8. should i move in w/ him he says he just wants to see
he says he misses how his ex wife would feel in bed and he needs to cuddle a woman at night and he wants to come home from a hard days work to a beautiful woman and he wants me to be there for him also he wants the home cooked meals again. he wants a woman’s touch around the house too because his wife rather cheat on him and smoke crack then be with him and his kids are big one is 22 yrs old and the other is 15 yrs old but he says that the older one’s in college living on campus and the 15 yr old is hardly ever there and he spends most of his time in my apartment complex at his sisters apartment because he is lonely and needs to be around people. i’ve only known him for a month in a half but he is already wanting me to move in w/him his house is really nice with a big backyard for my boys im soooo tempted to do it. he asked his older sister and she was like no! don’t do it i think she should mind her own business… i like him so much too and he is the only guy that has ever had so muc

Administrator answers:

I understand your dilema i was a struggling single mom for many years as well, but how well do u really know this guy?? Remember although financially he may be a walk in the park , if you dont know him very well he could be a nightmare and your children ultimately pay the price of the men you choose to keep under the same roof with them.. Stop seeing dollar signs and start seeing if he’s worth putting your kids in this situation and if it doesnt work out in 2 months do u have a back up plan or would u and your kids be out on the street.. ??????? Make sure your making the right choice for your kids..

Carol asks…

I need some advice to help an older person in need of immediate assistance?

OK. I live in California, in Mendocino County, if that makes any difference. We’re trying to find some help for my husband’s aunt. After having been out of the area for many years, she came back maybe 8 months ago or so. She was living in essentially a little shack on the back of this guy’s property. She’s frail and almost 60; he’s older than her but I’m not sure how much. But they had a tumultuous relationship – she told us on many occasions he’d abused her, when she got extra $ he came demanding extra for utilities, she was not allowed to have a fridge or any kind of cooking apparatus in her “home.”

A couple weeks ago she got into an argument with this guy. He called the cops on her and told them she was abusing HIM. So she was arrested and taken taken to jail. My husband had received a call from her public defender just a couple days ago through his job that she might be locked up even for another few months while they try to sort things out.

Then we got a call today; they called my husband’s work, who contacted us at home. His aunt has been released; she is at the community center in the next town over (where the county jail is) and she showed up there extremely disoriented. The only thing she told them she wanted was a bus ticket and to find her nephew (my husband). We can go get her…. but the problem is we don’t know what to do with her when she gets here. We don’t have a place where she can stay.

I am hoping someone can give me some referrals to where we can call to get help for her. She’s just one little old lady, all she needs is just a room in a house that she can rent cheaply. We’re up a wall right now… we don’t even know right now whether we’re going to be able to afford next month’s rent living in our OWN house let alone helping her get a place.

Please if anyone can help me I would sure appreciate it. We’ve already tried to contact our local battered women’s shelter, which can’t help her, and we’re waiting to get a return phone call from APS (adult protective services) which I’m not sure whether they will help her or not. She’s already tried to fill out paperwork before all this happened, and is on the waiting list for section 8 housing.

Any advice gratefully accepted. Thank you in advance.

California is really expensive but if you really want to help her you could buy a house in a cheaper area and just allow her to live there.

Real estate is REALLY cheap where I live… Toledo ohio. You can buy a livable house for under 10k and let her make the payments

here’s one for 4k

Not fantastic and in a crappy neighborhood, but its better than being homeless. I’m sure you could find something closer in other depressed cities.

Heck you might even want to relocate… The hardest part is getting a loan.

Richard asks…

2 daughters who cant get along.?

I have 2 daughters, 31 and 23. The oldest is married with 2 children, (we both lost sons) and my youngest daughter lives with me, she is a college student., an she is on my section 8 voucher. I am SSDI. We share a car. First, when she has a certain friend over, who has a 3 yr old and a skanky boyfriend, (SORRY!) but yet, she ALWAYS has to bring them, and can never some alone. I dont like this, but my daughter is a good friend to all. BUT WE SHARE this apt. I dont know how to tell her in a nice way, your friend can come over, but can she leave at least the boyfriend home??? He is a mute.lol, says nothing. The other issue is that my oldest daughter feels slightled, cause her sister lives with me, we dont share expenses, as her money has to last her thru college, as there student loans, but does pay for her credit cards, Victoria Secrets, etc. and her dog, and maintaining the car. My oldest is struggling, and doesnt think its fair my youndest still llives at home, and pays little, but can have her friends over any time, like its more like her apt, not mine. How can we find a happy medium, so there are no hard feelings between them? IF there is one. Im tired of the fighting, thew all grew up with no dad, my X took of when all my kids were small, and has never comtributed for any thing, hes on his 5th wife he can beat on, and didnt send flowers to his own sons funeral.lives in Missouri. NO HELP THERE> MY folks say it is my obligation to house and support my youngest daughter, although shes 23, almost 24, till she finishes college next year. I have no friends, and no boyfriend, so I live for my grandchildren, and my children, but the fighting and stress is going to take me down., I need advise please. What can I do? The youngest could get a small job, my rent would go up, but thats ok, but there arent any, as we live in a cluster of tiny NH towns. MacDonalds isnt even hiring, I just need some advise about the unfairness and hostility between them, which i am caught in the middle of., PLEASE HELP. THANKYOU

Administrator answers:

Your oldest daughter is 8 years older than her sister! She’s married with 2 children. Does she expect to live with you also? Or, is she just jealous that her younger sister gets to?

It’s great if you can provide a place for the younger one while she finishes college. But, she’s a grown woman. She should be grateful and doing everything she can to help you. Let her go visit the friends instead of having them come to your house. Or, just tell her that the stress of having a house full of people is too much for you. If the boyfriend doesn’t visit anyway, but just sits there, then he might as well sit at his own house.

Maybe you could ask the two sisters to work on their relationship as a favor to you. Your older daughter may be jealous because the younger one gets more of your time. Or, maybe she thinks that she has it way too easy. Perhaps the older daughter wishes that she could afford Victoria’s Secrets stuff! But, maybe she’d be happy to have some time by herself with you or her husband. Would the younger one be willing to watch the older ones kids once a week? That would be a nice gesture and might help the sibling relationship.

I think that you need to tell both of them to grow up because they’re stressing you out. Maybe they don’t realize how much they’re hurting you – so tell them! Good luck!

Laura asks…

Help with landlord?

FIRST I M IN OHIO.. IM ON SECTION 8 RENTAL ASSISTANCE.. OK HAD MY ANNUAL INSPECTION.. ALOT OF REPAIRS NEED DONE BYE MAY 15 , COUPLE NEW WINDOWS, CONDENSATION PUMP ON FURNACE ISNT WORKING.. AND THE HOUSE NEEDS PAINTED DESPIRATELY.. NOW SO FAR NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE , LANDLORD SAYS NOTHING TO ME.. AND WHEN HE DOES CALL AND TELLS ME HE IS COMING DOWN,, HE IS A NO SHOW… OR HE WILL TELL ME HE IS GOING TO FIX IT BUT.. NEVER DOES, I HAVE BEEN WITH THIS LANDLORD FOR 2 YRS NOW AND I HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD TENANT, CLEAN, RENT ON TIME.. AND ACTUALLY CLEANED UP THE TRASH THE LAST TENANTS LEFT.. WHAT DO I DO? HE LIVES IN A NICE EXPENSIVE HOME, HAS A G REAT HIGH PAYING JOB,, HE WIFE OWNS HER OWN BUSINESS, HE HIRES PEOPLE TO DO HIS WORK ON THE HOUSE.. WHAT SHOULD I DO? SHOULD I STA RT AND LOOK FOR ANOTHER HOUSE TO MOVE TOO? I NEED HELP? HE IS SO CHEAP, AND JUST RIGS THINGS UP TO MAKE THEM WORK NO MATTER WHAT.. I NEED ADVICE?
SECTION 8 is for low income people who cant afford the costs of HIGH rent.. When the landlord accepts HUD he knows he is responsible for all the REPAIRS, now some landlords are great.. and some tenants are great too.. but dont put us down just cause we are low income. I pay my rent on time, have a clean house,and yard.. and dont make trouble for anyone, I should get a descent home in return.. Im not asking for a 100% new house.. Im asking for a descent well maintained HOME. I shouldnt have to live with falling ceilings and broken windows.

HUD will not pay any more if the repairs are not done.

How to evict a relative that is in my home that will not move out.?

I helped my brother and his family they were kicked out ot a house they were renting the landlord told them out with no warning and did not give them notice i told them ok for a couple of days but now i want them out they owe me for room rate for renting my room.

They have no lease and i need to know in the state of Pa how many business days can i give the homeless couple to evict them out of my house they need to move and they are not.

I even told them section 8 is looking for people for their housing they gotten pissed at me and now is avoiding me any advice to get these people out of my house..

Administrator answers:

It appears that your bro & his family are guests in your house, not tenants, since they are not paying rent. Tell him he has until DATE to find a place and get out. 3-5 days should be plenty. Tell him you were happy to help him out for a couple of days while he found another place, but he has abused the invitation, has failed to help around the house or anything else, and he is abusing your relationship. If he does not leave by DATE, you will have to call the police to have them all removed, and you are changing all the locks.

House guests do not need to be formally evicted. They must leave when you tell them to.
