Her Parent’s Told her She Couldn’t Buy Her Grandparents’ Home, But Then She Went Behind Their Backs and Did it Anyway

A woman recently purchased her grandparents’ old farmstead despite her parents telling her she was too irresponsible for the property. When her father found out, he accused his daughter of betrayal and threatened to disinherit her. Here’s what happened.

Her Grandparents Owned a Farm

The 35-year-old woman was the middle child amongst a large brood of eight and grew up amidst the rustic charm of a bustling farm. This wasn’t just a family home; it was a livelihood, demanding undivided attention around the clock. 

She elaborated, “I wanted no part of it; hence, I’m practically the ‘black sheep’ of the family. I was a rebellious teenager, and it caused a lot of strain on my relationship with my parents.”

Five years ago, advancing age and declining health compelled her grandparents to relocate, moving in with the woman’s parents. 

Their decision came with heart-wrenching sacrifices as they were forced to say farewell to their cherished horses and their family home. The ancestral property, originally purchased by the woman’s great-great-grandfather, was expected to be purchased by her brother and his spouse.

However, the couple deemed the old farmhouse, which was showing its age and surrounded by untamed land, to be more work than they were willing to invest in. They refused to buy it and instead purchased a ‘turnkey’ property.

Consequently, the house sat vacant, slowly deteriorating.

The woman, however, saw the old house’s potential and also wanted to preserve this piece of family history. 

When she approached her parents, offering to buy the sentimental property, her parents swiftly dismissed her request. They reminded her of her tumultuous teenage years, labeling her ‘irresponsible’ and ‘unstable.’

Bizarrely, the parents also cited their daughter’s single status, asserting that she didn’t need so much space without a husband or children to fill it.

With her grandparents unaware of her interest and no one else in the family keen to buy the house, they listed the property with an estate agent. The granddaughter, however, was not aware of this.

Fate intervened when an old acquaintance of the woman in the real estate realm recognized the listing and tipped her off. In a twist, she covertly acquired the ancestral house, with her cash offer being immediately accepted. 

She added, “I didn’t think it would work, but it did. Over the last two years, I’ve had the place redone from top to bottom inside and out while keeping all this quiet.”

Recently, the woman’s grandfather’s birthday plans provided the perfect stage for the big reveal. To enhance the surprise, she repurchased the older couple’s beloved horses from a family friend. 

The grandparents had initially made the 1.5-hour drive to see their horses regularly, but their visits had dwindled as the drive became too much.

As the elder couple’s car approached, their joy at seeing their rejuvenated home, coupled with the sight of their adored horses, would be etched in the woman’s heart forever. 

Yet, the celebration was instantly overshadowed when her parents realized the identity of the new homeowner, and they quickly turned on their daughter in fury, calling her disrespectful and disobedient for going against their wishes.

The grandparents, having been kept in the dark about their granddaughter’s initial desire to buy the house, voiced their support for her actions. Her grandfather had some strong words for the woman’s father and even prompted tears.

As it turned out, the elder couple would have been more than happy to sell their house to the woman directly and were delighted that it was still in their family.

The homeowner stated, “The phone calls that have followed up until now are ridiculous. My grandparents are now splitting their time here and with my parents, which has caused even more issues,” she admitted.

Her parents, still furious, demanded an apology and threatened to modify their will to exclude her. Unperturbed, the woman claimed she didn’t need their money or their approval.

Was She Wrong?

Although resolute in her stance, the woman regretted that the revelation had opened up old family wounds and conflicts. While her purchase was slightly underhanded, she was only forced to be deceitful by their rigid refusal and inability to forget her past. 

Still, with tensions high and her parents stubbornly refusing to admit they were wrong, she began to consider her actions and asked the internet for advice, seeking validation.

Internet Users Responded

One person remarked, “You bought it fair and square, and your parents are just mad they couldn’t control both you and your grandparents. I’m glad you got the house and the horses back! Your grandparents are happy. Your parents are the ones being disrespectful.”

Another suggested, “What is the worst part is, your parents would rather have seen it go to complete strangers than see you have it.”
