My brother rents an apartment with me and my husband. He has gone through some things such as a divorce and foreclosure. He has a full time job that pays a decent wage (nothing extravagant). He owns two vehicles, both of which are not running and have expired plates. He claims that it will be very expensive to fix them up to plate them. He is generous with me as im not currently working. He buys things for the home and fixes things ocassionally.
About 6 months ago i started letting my brother borrow the car to go to work. This leaves me without a ride, but because im not currently working a steady job (ocassionally translating) so i dont need the car every day. When i know in advance that i will need the car he does try and find a ride. He mentions that he worries that the people giving him a ride are not super happy about it.
I need to make some changes with the car that will either require that he either pay the insurance or not drive the car any more at all. How would you approach this... considering that he will not have a ride to work and with very little notice? I dont want to be the bad guy but i cant just let this continue. Any suggestions?
