If I use the money that is in my mothers bank account( I am

If I use the money that is in my mothers bank account( for which I am the power of attorney) (she is 94 years old and is in a facility for Alzheimers patients), would there a gift tax involved. We are buying a house and need "seasoned funds" to be in our account for 60 days. After that time, we would put the money back into her account. We do not really need the money, we can come up with the down payment of $140,000 on our own, but the loan broker said the underwriters will want us to have 6 months reserve for mortgage payments, property tax and insurance on our other houses, (1 is in a lease-option), one is listed for sale and the one we live in now will be rented out, but she said that is what is required, which will be about $85,000 more($225,000) than we have to "season" before she can submit the package.

I have leased a restaurant years and have 2 years left on

I have leased a restaurant for 32 years and have 2 years left on the lease. My landlords have packaged up several (8) commercial spaces including mine and put it on the market. At my expense I had the building appraised and offered a full appraisal offer which was denied because they wanted to sell all of the properties together. The property went under contract last week. I have "Right of first refusal" written into my lease but cannot and do not want to but the whole package just my building. What is my legal recourse and what do you think my chances are in court?
