Appleton, WI asked in Real Estate Law for Wisconsin

Q: My parents have 2 homes on their property in the country am I legally able to live in the other home?

They need help around the land and want their grandkids to love closer, so we are considering moving to the other home. Homes are about 100 feet from each other and were built at the same time. One was built as a mother in law home. We just want to be sure that this is legal.

A: Your parents have the right to allow anyone they wish to live in the other home. If you do move into the other home, you may want to have a written agreement with your parents outlining the expectations of your occupancy to avoid problems in the future.
