What to do when you inherit a mess
I grew up in a large immediate family, and an even larger group of well-meaning aunts, uncles, and family friends. Anyone who has ever been a part of a large family has probably, on more than one occasion, received a hand-me-down or had well-intentioned relatives give you a freebie. . . And if so, you know that beneath the surface of that cool-sounding inheritance, the rumored stylish clothes, or the old “family car” a nightmare could be lurking. Suddenly, your sudden fortune on four wheels feels like a curse that is two-thirds money pit and one third eye-sore.
