Is my mom responsible for half of the insurance claim deductible for renting her 1/2 of the garage to my uncle who also owns the property with my mom?
Question Details: My mom and uncle own a 2 flat brick building. My mom rented her half of the garage to my uncle so that he would have the whole garage for his use. Unfortunately, during that time the garage was broken into and some of my uncles stuff was stolen. He submited an insurance claim with our home owners insurance for the stolen stuff. There was a $1000 deductible that needed to be paid. He now wants my mom to pay for half of that because he was renting from my mom. Is she liable?
