Legal Answers
Q. Real Estate Closing, NY Is it legal for my lawyer to hire a lawyer to represent me at closing, without my permission?
A: It has been my experience that if you have a "retainer" agreement with the attorney, such agreement often includes language that says that the attorney might associate themselves with others to help you complete your matter. Often real estate closings occur without retainer agreements because most times the attorney charges less than the amount where a written retainer is requred ($3,000 in NY). So, it sounds like your attorney needed to have your closing covered to get it closed for you. It is not "illegal," but you probably should have been advised it was going to happen.
Q. How do you go about pursuing elder abuse without the elders agreeing?
A: Sounds like you should pursue guardianship litigation, or get a power of attorney from your parents and then sue.

If your parents are letting your sister do it, you may have no grounds though
Q. Hi, I've put my apartment on Airbnb and curious how I should split the profit with my boyfriend.
A: Your question raises some questions. Is your BF on the Lease? I am not sure how you obtained a Lease without a SSN, so I am not sure why that matters now. Also, does your landlord, municipality, and building permit short term rentals like AirBnB? Why is he entitled to any "profit."

I feel like you have put the cart before the horse on this

Good Luck,
