Can't find the right answer. Help!

Use PPS or PS

B. How long / you / have /that? A. We / have / it since the kids / be / tiny. It / belong / to my parents before us, so it / be / the family holiday home for a long time. B. / you / go / there when you / be / a child? A. Yes. Then my father / want / to sell it so I / buy / it.

My version B How long have you had that? A We've had it since the kids were tiny. It's belonged to my parents before us, so it has been the family holiday home for a long time. B Did you go there when you were a child? A Yes. Then my father wanted to sell it so I bought it.

All fine, I believe, but for "it's belonged". Since it does not belong to the parents anymore, and since it beloged to the parents before, I would put the Past simple: "It belonged to my parents before us".

  • But is it ok to use PP and PS together in one sentence ? – iiieee M Mar 27 '18 at 17:37
  • It depends. Here it is ok, because the house has been in the family for a long time (duration form), since before it belonged to the parents and now it belongs to the children, so it is still in the family. – laura caliban failli Mar 27 '18 at 17:49
