17 Y.O. Found Out Mom And Stepdad Purchased A House Using His Inheritance Money From Dad, Later Exposed The Man In Front Of His Visiting Family

While there are a lot of things that have the potential and power to do so, an inheritance is probably one of the most notorious things that brings out the worst in people.

After all, money calls out a lot of things in humans: everything from greed to pride to envy… nearly the entire rainbow of sins and then some.

So, you can guess what’s coming next as this Am I The A-Hole? story is exactly that, a story of inheritance and what looks like greed in disguise.

So, meet u/reddit_randouser, a 17-year-old lad who lost his father 2 years back, and now lives with his mother and step-dad. Turns out, he is also set to get an inheritance when he turns 18.

However, one day the whole family, having lived in a 3-bedroom apartment, decided to move into a new home, which was a whole huge house. For OP, this seemed a tad bit weird as his mother is a part-time receptionist, and his step-dad is a substitute teacher. How could they afford a house at this point?

Well, Randouser did also notice the guilty look on his mom’s face one day, and she finally admitted that she had actually tapped into the inheritance fund, which was all OP’s, by the way, and used it to buy the house they live in.

And a recent story from a 17 y.o. inheritance beneficiary whose fortunes are being wasted against his will perfectly exemplifies this

Needless to say, OP was not happy about this. The parents did try to justify that the house was for him, but he questioned if they will be moving out when he turns 18, and the answer was no. Heck, they didn’t even consult with him about it, just straight up used the money and end of discussion. So, it’s all just for them, not him.

But this is context. The last straw was one Saturday, when OP was getting ready for work in the morning. Some of step-dad’s family were visiting, and they stayed over through to the morning, so here comes step-dad into the kitchen where OP is getting some breakfast, and asks if he’s gonna prepare it for everyone.

Randouser wouldn’t have been able to prepare food for everyone without running late for work, to which the dad responded that it’s no big deal if he is late for work—it’s not every day that family visits, so it’s justified.

They're going to regret that decision...that money was left for him and her job was to protect it until he is an adult. So if that house isn't titled to him and it shows that money was removed from the inheritance to buy it they're going to have to sell it or sign it over.

Surprised this wasn't set up in a trust fund only accessible at a certain age. Isn't that how it's usually done?

It was set up so that the trust would be released to OP at the age of 18, but since OP was still under age, it likely was set up with the mother as a custodian of the trust. And she is gonna be in some serious trouble - the OP is going to contact his godparent for help.
