Q. is This legal for my dad to keep property and change ownership and then take out loans on houses in my moms sole name?
A: That is not correct. You need to bring a motion in the Surrogate's Court.
Q. Contractor breached contract, causing damages instead of doing the agreed-upon work. How can I get my house repaired?
A: You cannot force these guys to do the work. You have to get the work done by someone else, and then sue the first guys for the damages as calculated by the next person. The issue is collecting a judgment. If the first company was a scam and the people are not real contractors, you might have trouble collecting.
Q. Can the executor of my aunt's estate come after me for the joint account my aunt put me on years before she passed away?
A: Short answer -- if she pays the filing fee she can come after you. The question is will she win. This is a more complex question, and depends on many factors, including the reason you are on the account. If it was "convenience", i.e. to help pay bills, etc., then you could have to give it back.
