  • Hi Kumar. It would really help if you could include more details about what you don't understand, and what you are trying to do. ell.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/439/… – fred2 Mar 22 at 0:46
  • What do you mean by: He is having to pay the money? It's a very unusual form. – Lambie Sep 18 at 23:13

He has to pay the money.

The money has to be paid by him.

Now, this

He is having to pay the money.

is odd, not wrong, but it means one is describing "he" currently having to pay the money.

He is having to pay the money for the lease this month.

Finally,

The money is having to be paid by him.

I would advise against this. I can imagine it being used like

Because he is the co-signer on the loan, the money is having to be paid by him.

But that's unnecessary. Forget that. Use "has to."
