Legal Answers
31 Questions Answered

Q. My uncle has power of attorney for my grandma. I rent a home from her. She's alive and of sound mind. Can he kick me out
A: You ask if your uncle, who has your grandmother's PoA, can evict you from her property, which you currently rent. The Short Answer is "Yes." That is what a Power of Attorney is for - it relieves the grantor (your grandmother) of the responsibility to manage certain tasks in favor of the grantee (your uncle) - who must act in a fashion consistent with the best-interest of the grantor. In short, your uncle is your grandmother's fiduciary: if he believes that having you live in the subject property is not in the best interest of your grandmother (i.e. she could rent it to someone else or sell it more easily without you there) then he can - and should - evict you. But that is a whole process. It is not just a matter of telling you to "get out" and you depart voluntarily. I recommend you speak with a competent Attorney in your area in order to protect yourself. I hope this information was helpful. Best of luck.
Q. What are the legal implications if an executor of an estate wants to purchase the residential property of said estate?
A: You ask about the "legal implications" of an Executor who is also a surviving sibling (of the Decedent?) buying the Estate's property and asking that a real estate agent not be involved. Without going too deep into the details, this idea appears wrong on every level. In short, there are red flags here: (1) Is the Executor of the this Estate also a beneficiary? (2) The Court should be apprised before any deal is made. (3) A real estate agent SHOULD be employed to get the highest price and ensure an arm's length transaction I could go on, but the point is that there is just too much that could go wrong in this situation. If I were you I would retain an Attorney to ensure that the remaining siblings (beneficiaries?) of the Estate are not shorted out of their fair share. I hope this information was helpful. Best of luck.
Q. Is the "Home Repair and Remodeling Act" in Illinois still in effect?
A: Yes. The Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act found at 815 ILCS 513/ is still the law of the land in Illinois. It requires that certain disclosures be made by a contractor before performing work on behalf of a consumer in connection with a residence. Keep in mind that the Act can only be enforced by the State of Illinois.
