My parents recently got divorced, which was pretty tough on the whole family. My father moved out of my childhood home, and decided to move into his own childhood home, which he had recently inherited. He obviously has a sentimental attachment to the property, but I’m really concerned about it. It’s very old and run-down, and I’m not sure it’s made of the sturdiest materials. I am afraid that it may literally fall down!
My dad says this is all nonsense, of course, and insists that old houses like this are “built tough” and “never fall down” – they used “better materials” back then, he says. But there are cracks in the walls and I’m very concerned. What should I do?
