Q: Living at step mom house
Basically living in my step mom house till i close on my house on the 30th. My dog rip up the carpet im the room in staying in. Im going to replace the carpet because the carpet in this room now is 20 plus years old. Now shes saying she wants the padding and closet done to or shes going to sue me. My dog didn't chew up the padding and the closet i couldn't even tell you what color carpet is in it because the hasnt been opened because my wardrobe been in fromt of it. Then i go to work today. Come back to everything being thrown in my room. My wardrobe moved. I guess she had the carpet people come measure the closet without my knowing. I pay no rent. No agreements. Im just staying here till i close on my house
A: Just humor your mother. Pay for the carpet and the padding. You got free rent. Do the right thing. Besides, it probably won't cost you any more then your first trip to talk to an Attorney. And I agree with your mom. If you are going to put in new carpeting you should also change the padding underneath. Also if you are are going to carpet a room it would be foolish not to include the connected closet space as well. I would just tell your mom that the padding and the closet carpeting is her early Christmas gift.
