Am I right not to give my father money in our housing dispute? Posted on March 01, 2011
I own a 1/4 share of a four family property. My dad owns 1/2 and my brother the other 1/4. I occupy one apartment. The yearly expenses on the house is about $18,000. My father collects all the rents and gives me none, but he insists I pay him a monthly fee of $400. In the meantime, I pay for some of his personal bills every month. The property brings in about $48,000 a year. My dad also lives on the premises in the basement. I refuse to give him any money because I don't receive any rents. Please advise on whether I am correct or not.
