What to do?
So I have a question. So the family camp that I have gone to for the last 27 years(been going there since is was 12 am now 39) well there are some issues. So here is the deal. My grand father and great uncle owned the camp for many years. When my grandfather passed 8 years ago he offered his share to his children. My mom and dad wanted a share, her brother my uncle also wanted a share, another aunt and uncle also wanted a share. They did not pay for my grandfathers share. At the same time they each bought my great uncle out of his share. So like idiots they did not have any paperwork written up, no camp rules, no buy out clause, nothing. Idiots.The first year or so was fine, each party paid their $100 dollars per month that was the only verbal agreement they had and everything was fine.
Now just like my self my uncle(grandpas son) has been going there since he was 12, now 55. My dad has been hunting there well at least as long as me 27 years plus. Myself my uncle and my dad use the place all the time. So the other aunt and uncle never went to the place even before they owned it, they went there a few times but the uncle got discouraged because it took him 45 mins to get to his hunting spot.
So now the last 5 years or so the other aunt and uncle no longer contribute the $100 dollars per month, it is obviously a very sore subject in the entire family. My parents and uncle are each paying 50% of the bills but are only 1/3 owners.
I told my parents to have the place appraised and buy them out, which the aunt and uncle would be fine with. Here is my question even though there was no verbal agreement, IMO they should no be compensated for my grandfathers share since they never paid for it. Also even though they never used the place for years I feel every month they did not pay their $100 dollars per month, it should be deducted off of the buyout price.
Sorry to vent just my opinion, hopefully no one else has to go though this. Thanks for your input and if I am looking at this wrong please let me know.
