Dear OP, First of all, you have all rights to ask your parents to move to another place. However, you cant ask them to buy property just for show off in front of your in laws. You worked for 9 years and never invested anything at that time and waited till marriage to get property after that. so that will be yours and not your parents right? you could have very well invested all your 9 years savings and bought property in ur parents name right? not in prime location but somewhere little outside to save your father's pride. May be your father want to spend his earnings and dont want to invest big and live same old life... if you are giving jewels to your father, what will ur husband think? he and ur in-laws will say that your father bought house only using ur jewels. That will low ur father's respect even more..
