What Is The Transfer On Death Deed In Texas?
Since September 1, 2015, Texas law has permitted a deed to be recorded in the county records where the property is located to identify the recipients of an after an individual’s property after their death. A transfer on death deed can be used in conjunction with payable on death forms for non-probate assets to potentially avoid the necessity to probate a will. A transfer on death deed is not for everyone, but an estate planning tool to be considered depending on the circumstances of the estate plan.
Can Someone Handle Estate Planning And Real Estate Issues Without An Attorney?
I have represented several individuals who have attempted to handle legal matters on their own only for complications to occur costing them more than if they would have initially hired an attorney. Hiring a knowledgeable attorney is imperative. I try and create a personal relationship with each client with the goal to deliver legal services at a fair price. I receive tremendous satisfaction from the many thank you notes received from clients for my handling of their legal needs.
What Are The Pitfalls Of Trying To Handle Estate Planning Or Real Estate Issues On Your Own?
Estate planning or real estate documents prepared by an individual without assistance from an attorney tend to lack the necessary legal requirements. When the will is probated, there may be hurdles or additional complications to the probate process because the will was not properly drafted.
A proper estate plan is very important to me. My office offers probate services for as little as $750 per individual. This includes a will, power of attorney, medical power of attorney, medical directive, HIPAA authorization and children’s medical power of attorney, if necessary.
The Texas Real Estate Commission through its Broker-Lawyer Committee has promulgated several useful forms for the purchase and sale of residential real estate in Texas. The Texas Association of Realtors has also published forms for commercial real estate transactions. All of these forms have been prepared in consultation with attorneys. They are used throughout the industry by real estate agents and brokers because of their familiarity. I am also a licensed real estate agent in Texas and depending upon the transaction, I may be able to take a commission in the real estate transaction and not charge the client attorney’s fees.
What Sets You and Your Firm Apart In Handling Estate Planning & Real Estate Matters?
My goal is to treat a client how I would want to be treated as if I was sitting on the other side of my desk. I want my representation to be a positive experience for the client. My motto is to keep it simple. I want the client to take what they have received from my office and be able to implement what I have prepared. Communication is paramount to quality legal representation. Responding to client emails and returning their phone calls is integral. I never want a client to feel like the only thing received is an invoice. Quality legal services, fair price, outstanding communication, that is what I strive for in my firm.
