I have durable power of attorney for my grandpa. He and I reside in the same house, with my brother.

Asked about 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

There is a temporary full order of protection for my brother for assaulting me. He is not allowed in the house. Can I legally evict him? He does not pay rent. Thete is no lease. He is a terror and I want him out.

    Answered . It depends on what powers you were granted in the power of attorney. Assuming it gave you full power to conduct all of his affairs including real estate transactions you may evict your brother. Have an attorney review the poa to see of you have been granted that authority.
