Why you should consider putting your parent’s home in a trust

Estate planning is all about streamlining the complicated and emotional legal challenges that follow the death of a loved one. A house is perhaps the most valuable assets a person obtains during their lifetime. So, as you might imagine, your parent’s home(s) may be complex to manage after their passing.

Charitable giving can be part of an estate plan

The point of an estate plan is to create the means for an efficient transition of assets upon one's passing. Among other issues that estate planning can address is the continuation of charitable giving initiated during one's life or the creation of a new gift to a favored cause or charity. There are many ways that estate owners in Washington can accomplish charitable goals.

Writing a will that takes family into account

It can be relatively easy for Washington residents to create a will. It can also be relatively easy for them and others to create a will that creates tension between family members. To limit the chances that an estate plan causes families to break apart, it is important to select the right executor. In some cases, this means choosing a professional to do the job as opposed to the oldest child or a close friend.
