Estate Planning:

Estate planning is especially important for owners of rural land. Passing rural land to family members requires careful consideration of who may want the land, how to make similar gifts to those who may not be interested in your land, and how to develop a structure in which multiple owners can share the land with minimal conflict. Estate planning also includes taking steps to protect assets during your life. In January, I gave a short webinar regarding three key considerations for estate planning with owners of rural land. That 15-minute presentation is included in today’s resources. I encourage you to take a moment to view the video. Also included is an article identifying 5 reasons it is important to have a comprehensive estate plan. At Braun & Gresham we strive to assist owners of rural land in protecting their assets and planning for the future. Please contact me at (512) 894-5426, or [email protected], if you want more information about estate planning.
