We talked about landlord-tenant law since so many empty nesters are downsizing and many Millennials are putting off buying a home in favor of renting, often in “hip” urban areas.  We didn’t get too far into it because I took several listener calls, including the following: Worries about a neighbor’s dead tree endangering the caller’s property; whether Social Security payments are exempt from the reach of one’s creditors; how to deal with after-discovered assets when the decedent’s estate is already closed; and what to do about a discrepancy between one’s birth certificate name and the name one’s mother actually gave her as a newborn.
