Be careful before listing your NYC home on a vacation rental site

If you're going to be out of town for a time on business or vacation or staying with family and are considering listing your home on Airbnb or another vacation rental site, make sure you know the law. New York City has strict regulations involving the rental of homes on these sites, and the fines for violating them can be hefty. You could even be subject to eviction.

You can put an estate plan in place from home

In light of the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions now in place, you and your attorney can now put a comprehensive estate plan in place without leaving your home? This is particularly important for older people who may put off their estate planning because it's difficult or dangerous for them to get out. However, anyone can develop an estate plan using videoconferencing and other alternatives to in-person communication.

The sooner you begin Medicaid planning, the better the protection

Too many people don't think about whether they will need Medicaid until they are actually in the situation where they have to apply for Medicaid's income-based medical benefits. This lack of preparation likely reflects the fact that many people don't realize that the government won't just look at their current income but also at their financial history when reviewing an application for Medicaid benefits.

How your home can impact your custody rights

If you've moved out of your family home following your separation or divorce -- particularly if you've downsized considerably -- you may be concerned that your living accommodations will impact your custody rights. However, you don't have to live in a mansion with massive TVs in every room to be able to provide a good home for your children whenever they're with you.
