Should I Transfer My House To My Kids?

For many people, a home is an important asset that can be approached in various ways when it comes to estate planning. Some individuals choose to simplify their estates by transferring their houses to their children, often by deeding their home directly to a child or children, or by putting a property into a trust.

If you are asking the question, "Should I transfer my house to my kids?" you may be concerned about your exposure with regard to the cost of long-term care, or you may have specific concerns about taxes. The answer will depend on your situation. In developing a plan that will help you achieve your goals, numerous factors should be explored with the help of an experienced elder law attorney.
