You are finding that homes built to the family of the 1950's and 60's and in now way able to meet the needs and expectations of today's family.

Your best approach will likely be to find a total solution for the problem. Today's needs include a two bathroom scenario at the very least. With this said, the locations of such facilities should be a major consideration and you'll likely find (hopefully not too late) that having baths in the basement and second level will not get it done. Future buyers will see this as a huge inconvenience and render your home as likely flawed for the RE market.

With this said, in my opinion your absolute best choice is to "bite the bullet" and do what needs to be done to locate the bath where it should have been in the very beginning....on the first floor.

Good luck with your decision.

Oy, why would you want to do this on your own? I find it interesting that people consider trying to handle complicated legal procedures on their own when they wouldn't dream of doing things like performing surgery on themselves.

At the very least, consult with an attorney and explain your situation. Consult with a couple of attorneys. They usually don't charge for an initial consultation. From there, you can decide if someone is willing to work for YOUR best interests and not charge you an arm or a leg. That way, you'll know it's being handled correctly so you can walk away with no worries about future repercussions.
