Parents are not required to leave their children an inheritance when they die. I mean it sucks. But I mean maybe he’s worried it would only set you up for a short term fix where he would want it long term? Maybe show him you’d be responsible? Not saying that’s how he’s thinking but I’ve had aunts and uncles who will only give an inheritance to their kids as long as each shows they are responsible adults. And that’s thanks to their sister who wasted her inheritance when their mom died.

He thinks once you know you're going to get all of "dead grandpa's" money, he might die in an "unfortunate accident."

Here's a thought: Why don't "you" get a "job" and buy a "house" with "your money?"

Where I am, if OP is a minor then the dad DOES have to leave an inheritance. Where I am, a deceased's spouse and dependent children must be provided for.

I think the issue is the father making it sound like they earned the money and therefor, OP should also have to. even though the father did no, since they inherited it. and depending on OP's age it is a fair concern for a young person to worry about not being able to afford a home seeing the current struggle.

@ Everyone who's saying it's his money and why should OP have it. The point is the father's hypocrisy. Get over yourselves.

That doesn't mean OP is entitled to it. By that logic, I should inherit the money. Because I'm sure I've done just as much to deserve it as OP.
