I have power of attorney of my dad's real estate and financial situation. My mom is still married with my dad. Can we transfer deed to my dad? Can I do this with power of attorney. Who would have rights to my brothers house after his passing? What can I do?
I live in the house. Dad and Mom wanted only me to have house, not my brother, because I took care of them for over 10 years. There are no papers signed though for me to have it. My brother said you have to have his name on it also because they left no papers for me to have it.

Under the document dated in 2012. There here several lease renewals after that date and the obligations of the 2012 lease were met. Should he have sued me under the lease that covers the montages in question ?
The change of ownership won't affect the lease in effect. The new owner must respect and entertain the lease terms unless the lease says otherwise. S/he cannot kick you out. However, RPL §226-c concerns renewal (or no-renewal) of a residential lease. So if your lease is to expire soon and the...Read more »
Her son who has lived out of state for over 40 years had her sent to an attorney who coerced her to sign a deed transfer. Her son was not present. She was not aware that the attorney she was sent to had her sign a quitclaim. How can she have the transfer put aside.?
There is no simple form or other step to take. Litigation is required to correct this situation unless the party the property was transferred to agrees to transfer the property back to your grandmother.

No one is compelled to do anything. If there is money, someone should step up. If not, there is nothing to do. If there is something that must be done, but no money, there is an Office of the Public Administrator in each county to handle estates of decedents where there is no one else.
