Her husband inherited a property from his father 11 years ago. For five years, her husband has been renting the house to a lovely family with a young 5-year-old child. They've been great tenants, and there haven't been any issues.
A month ago, her husband was approached by a realtor about selling his property. Because of the location, the realtor had an interested buyer ready to offer $60,000 over the market. This was an opportunity he couldn't pass up.
Michael was distraught. It turns out that Michael and his wife are currently in hospice with their son, who has a terminal heart condition.
The doctors have given their son a month or two to live. Her husband knew the boy was sick but never knew it was so severe.
Michael told her husband there was no way they could pack up the house and find a new rental in time. The hospice where they reside is over three hours away, and he thinks it's terribly unfair that her husband expects them to sacrifice any of the time they have left with their son to move.
Michael called her husband a heartless sociopath. Her husband suggested they have a family member take care of the packing and finding a new place. But, the only family they have around is the wife's elderly father (her husband doesn't believe this).
Her husband suggest to Michael that they hire a moving company to handle the packing and try to find a rental online or possibly an Airbnb for a while. Michael claims he can't afford a moving company because of his son's medical expenses.
Her husband feels terrible about the situation and realizes he's making things harder for them but thinks it's not his responsibility to take care of them. He has given them the legally required notice. She feels that because of the money her husband will be making, he should offer to pay for a moving company and an Airbnb after they leave the hospice.
