What's fair? What would you do?

If you had 2 properties one worth £38K (small flat in a poor area) and the other £450k in a posh very good area and gave one flat to one nephew and the other to the brother (other nephew) as much as you have set both nephews up with a place to live for free. Is it wrong for the nephew who got the cheaper flat to feel a huge impact of un fairness? Is this nephew being ungrateful as he got a flat albeit in a ghetto and loads of social problems? This has happened in my family and has ripped us apart. The uncles excuse is the nephew who got the expensive flat will never be able to make it for himself in life.

    Not "fair" but life isn't fair. They should be grateful for the gift.

    It's the uncle's property and he can do whatever he wants to with it. That said, it does seem unfair.

  • I'd tell him that beggars can't be choosers.  He's perfectly free to find his own place and pay his own way in life, if he'd like.  Is it unfair?  No, because he's not entitled to a free place in which to inhabit in the first place.
