Imagine owning a house and deciding to move, but your lodger insists on dictating the terms of your new purchase! 😲 This is the predicament faced by a 36-year-old woman who, after receiving a windfall, decided to sell her current home and buy a 'forever home'. She's a part-time wheelchair user and has specific needs for her future abode. Her lodger of 9 years, however, has other ideas, making demands about the new house's features and location. Our homeowner is left wondering: should she stand her ground and choose her dream home, or should she consider her lodger's wishes? 🤔
