Hi ANIMAL LOVER
You have quite a complicated setup and perhaps all the recent changes have upset BC. He may well sense that your hormones and behaviour are different. I have no idea why cats urinate on kitchen counters, other than perhaps this is where they eat or where the cats gather mostly - a territorial thing. Perhaps 4 litter trays are not enough, so try having a few more. It sounds as if he may respond well to Ovarid, which is progesterone, a hormone. You could try him on it for a couple of months, see if it works, and then wean him off and see if he has settled down. Felliway may also help, but ask your vet for all the information on this before buying it as it is very expensive. If your cats like catnip this can have a calming effect on them. Or you could try Valerian (either the plants or the tablets) if you think he is very stressed. There are also herbal remedies called Bach Flower Remedies which work well on cats - ask a naturopath.
