Re: Insight/Opinion - Renting to your adult Child by Nicole (PA) on February 7, 2018 @10:32

everyone will tell you don't do it ... that is everyone except me !! I have rented to family members, including my children, for over 30 years and it hasn't been a real issue. Yes, I am not always happy about everything but it's never unmanageable. With my kids, I lay the law down of what I want and expect and I remind them if they got off track.

the key has always been that I was of the mind set that if something/anything ever went wrong (and thankfully it didn't other than minimal) I would take the financial hit .

My kids are productive, well rounded adults ... I never saw any reason not to give them an easier start to life since I was in a position to do so.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. What you wrote is kind of how I am feeling about it. I am in a position that I can help out a little bit more. She has been out of state for 2 years left to go to college met a boy, you know that kind of story. I just can't wait for her to move home. It'll be the both of them. She's been paying rent since moving with minimal issue just a few hiccups along the way. She's a good kid and I'm hoping she continues to stay on that path :-)
