My inlaws have a key to our house. We are moving in a few months to our own house.....I don't want them having a key.
They have always had a key ever since I moved in with my husband. This was his house long before I moved in. So...not much I could do about it. I feel uncomfortable that they can just come and go as they please.....sometimes they will bring stuff over to the house and if we aren't home they just let themselves in and think nothing of it. I just don't like it.
Would it be awful if we don't give them a key to our new house? I REALLY don't want them to. My husband doesn't care either way.
You now live there and this isa new place
One thing if they had the key before you came about, but now you are living with heir son and you will be in a different place.
I see no need for it
You need your privacy. Maybe he didnt care, but you do. I would never hand someone my keys to come and go as they please.

No, I wouldn't give them the key. I am currently ignoring my in laws so nope. Just don't give them it if your husband doesn't care one way or the other. You don't want them having it so don't give it to them.

Oh good....glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I mean....don't get me wrong, I love them, they're awesome...but I just don't want them having a key to our new house lol
by AnonymousJanuary 18 at 7:00 AMNo I wouldn't. My fil has a key but its worthless now that I secured the front door too but he has a key to my apartment.
by MistyMooJanuary 18 at 7:01 AMNo.. Well, mil did when she loved with us, but I can't remember if she gave it back or not.. Not a big deal seeing as how they don't come by very often; they live in SC and we live in ON, so they usually call before dropping in LOL that's a long way to go to ind out that nobody is home.

My mom has a key to my house, but she's never let herself without asking. I gave her one because I have a bad habit of locking myself out lol!
January 18 at 7:02 AMI wouldn't give a key to anyone iny family.
January 18 at 7:03 AMIt's not fun. I bought a house when I was in high school but my mom had to co-sign since I had no credit. She had a key because of that and showed up unannounced all the time.
I rent from nicks grandparents now (basically in laws). They don't have keys but they have a garage door opener. They're very respectful about it though so it's never an issue. I actually have a key to their house too :)
