Hire an Estate Planner
Estate planning involves formulating decisions in advance on what should happen to an individual’s assets, when the said individual has passed away or has become incapacitated. An individual’s estate includes the sum of a person's assets – legal rights, interests and entitlements to property of any kind – taking in account of all liabilities at that time. A professional who deals in real estate planning is called as a real estate planner and thus is an integral part of the real estate industry.
What Does an Estate Planner Do?
An individual chooses to plan their estate for many reasons, which may include preserving the family wealth accumulated over years, for providing for surviving family members, or even for funding higher education of their children. A real estate agent planner guides clients in the process of estate planning every step of the way, by choosing the right plan, establishing trust funds, drafting the client’s will and getting a probate, choosing a guardian or executor of the will, and estate tax planning.
Estate planning is also undertaken by real estate lawyers, who oversee the legal aspects of real estate transactions. Alternatively, a real estate contract experts can also be hired to draft all related documents and help in the process of estate planning.
