Real estate considerations in inheritance and family law
There are a wide range of real estate considerations when planning or administering an estate and it is important to tackle them early, as waiting too long can limit the options available. Likewise, many family situations may require transactions to be completed, such as the transfer of property as part of a divorce settlement or the gift of property to loved ones.
Devichy provides a holistic approach to our clients’ needs and as such we can help them plan with these considerations in mind and with the execution of any related transaction.
