my husband's family was able to purchase an old house a few years back. now that we are the ones staying in the house, we would like to renovate it because it's so old and made of light materials.
the thing is, my husband's family is still paying monthly to the owners of the house because what they bought was the house only and the rights. i'm not so sure what he meant my "rights" but my husband explained it as rights to stay in the house. does that mean if we want to renovate the house, we need to pay the full amount of rent of the lot first before we can do anything?
can anyone give us a clear picture of what our rights are, what we can and cannot do to the house? can we make major renovations/extensions to the house?
thanks so much in advance.
