I am closing in the sale of my home. I work at the town office in the assessing department and so I am familiar with glitches that can happen with open permits etc. I am selling a Victorian home built in 1890 which has an unheated attic with sheetrocked walls and newer windows. The attic was this... Read more »
I have not seen your contract or listing. There is likely nothing wrong with an attic with no windows if it is not a living space. If the contract or listing represented that it was a living space, that is your problem. It is not the house that is in violation. It is the way you are using it...Read more »

Unheated space cannot be living space. The issue is the fault of your lawyer when you bought the house, your broker who listed it now as a "living space", and your lawyer who allowed this issue to fester until closing. While it is sometimes reasonable to overlook these issues at a...Read more »

My attorney is emailing every other day and giving explicit details... Read more »
You have a lawyer, so that person is closest to the situation. It may be the seller cannot convey clean title, in which case, assuming you used the form contract, they can get out of the deal. If that is the ultimate result get out now. You can sue to enforce the deal, but honestly, it is not...Read more »

Although I would not use a suspended lawyer for anything, a suspended lawyer can be a paralegal, and as long as they list themselves as a petition preparer, which is allowed and requires a separate form, that would be OK.

You need to have an architect file for this change. A contractor cannot do it. In fact, doing this work without the proper filings may mean that there are open violations and permits that are bigger issues.
My great Aunt passed away July 2015. The first issue was that her lawyer lived in CT, while she lived in NYC (Stuyvesant Town). So per NY law, the CT lawyer arranged for a NY lawyer to handle the estate. However, before they could go over all the details, the CT lawyer passed away suddenly in Dec... Read more »

It depends what the deed says. If it was your dad's house alone, then your step siblings with the same father share equally to you, and they can ask that the house be sold. You should become administrator of his estate to gain control of the process.
