Property Transfer Options
We can advise you on property transfer tactics that many people have attempted such as ownership in joint tenancy with survivorship rights; tenants in common; adding children on to a title and incorporation of real estate in IRAs. We can help you understand the impact of such actions on homestead exemptions in Florida, property appreciation, tax benefits or capital gains liabilities, and protection from creditors.
The greater the value your real estate has, the more complex the issues may be in connection with the transfer of that property. Anyone who hopes to pass on real property to family, loved ones or charitable organizations should ideally foresee and address potential complications such as aging factors and changes in health of the grantor(s). For example, should Medicaid planning be a consideration?
