I live in Chicago currently. But this may change, I'm not sure yet. We might lose our house... As far as I know, I have uncles who want to sell the apartment we live in... right under our nose (one of my uncles lives upstairs, and my other uncle lives in another city) Today my sister opened the door and was told by someone were taking pictures of the apartment. I don't know who they were. My uncle has been cleaning the apartment very well (attic especially), I guess to make it easier to sell. They don't care what happens to us when they sell the house. One of my uncles even told us that. Our grandmother is sick, she is in the nursing home. They want to sell the house to keep her there. <img alt="" src="http://www.goosemoose.com/rfc/Smileys/classic/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;"> I don't know if there's anything we can do about this.<br><br>
My sister is moving to West Virginia to get a job there and we may have to move with her. She's fine with it. But when I looked up exotic vets in West Virgina, there wasn't any results. The closest vet to St. Albans (yes she did say what city, although it *may* change, not sure!) is in Ohio. An hour and ten minute drive.. I went somewhere that said it would take an hour and ten minutes, it ended up taking two hours. And of course there's the worry if the vet will know about rats, is a good vet, etc. Because I love the vet I go to now, she's great with rats, isn't too far.. (45 min-1 hour) If I were to move (I hope we don't have to)... I would miss her. My sister explained that it is cheaper to live in West Virginia and how it's easier to find a job there than in Illinois, but everything I love is here. Another issue I have is the fact that there are no vegan restaurants. Chicago is full of them. And good vets. And buses to get to the vet if I have to travel by myself for whatever reason, which I have on several occasions. Not sure what to do about this situation.. Had to vent because I'm stressed out, I've been stressed out by this for months... My uncles have been talking about selling this apartment since last year...

Sorry to hear that. I don't fully understand your situation though. I'm assuming you live in a two story house in which your uncles own? One lives in the upstairs apartment and your family lives downstairs? Have your parents talked to them about this? Are your parents also listed on the mortgage? If not do they have some type of lease or written rental agreement with your uncles?

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hug:"> I'm very sorry to hear this. I hope you can stay in Chicago (sounds like you love it there), and can stay in your place. Talk to your uncles, see about buying it from them. I hope it all works out for the best. Good luck.

That is bad luck.<br><br>
do you need to live with your sister for some reason? You could look at this as a good opportunity to become independant from your family.

sounds like a sticky situation.<br><br>
do you have any kind of rental agreement, lease or contract?</div>

I am sorry about this and I am sorry for the delay in response been very stressing here, I know what and how family is about selling things out from among you while living there, my husband and I went through this last year with his fathers house and with the wicked lady he married, she took over everything and now her people lives in the house and we are stuck in a run down two bedroom , one bath duplex and we freeze at night because its not well insulated . we do have some heating but, it is still cold. I am sure there is some place in Chicago you can rent for cheap and still be able to stay, do you have any friends out there?
