Q. Is there any statues of limitations on an attorney committing fraud, stealing your money
A: Fraud is generally 6 years from date of fraud or when it should easily have been discovered. The rule varies by state. Talk to an attorney to see if you have options.
Q. Can a house guest that has become a resident refuse to leave a home when it is put up for sale by the owner?
A: Yes. From what you described he sounds like he needs to be evicted through legal means if he chooses to stay.
Q. My brother passed away and had no will his kids made me administrator of the estate. How do I split the home
A: The son could buy the 1/2 of the house the sister owns now. He should easily be able to get a loan for 50% of home. This protects the sister in case he eventually does something that could endanger the property. Talk to an attorney to go over your options and obligations as an executor. There are checklists as an executor you should follow. As an executor you have a lot of responsibility that could come back to bite you in the rear of you don't wrap things up correctly. At the end of the day, the home may need to be sold to pay the debts. It could be sold to the son, so you may need to talk to an attorney who does this on a daily basis to avoid the issues. Also as an executor you are entitled to a commission. It is up to you whether you take this or not
