Taking Title

People who own real estate have a powerful tool in their back pockets to ensure that their home is handled in the best way possible when they’re gone – but only when done right. Taking title properly is crucial in the estate planning process. By taking title correctly in the beginning, homeowners are able to have increased control over the outcomes of their estate when the time comes. It is important to understand the process as title will determine the parties’ legal rights. These legal rights involve matters such as ownership, real property taxes, gift and inheritance taxes, income tax and most importantly, transferability upon death.

In this video, JEFFREY BURR attorneys, Corey Schmutz and Rebecca Haines, discuss different methods of taking title, the benefits of each, and the potential situations that would lead a person to take title in the manner that would suit them best. Learn about:
