Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts
Every responsible adult should have a solid estate plan in place, and should review their estate plan periodically. Here are some key indicators that it is time to create or update your estate plan.
You should update your estate plan if you have:
- Bought or sold a home
- Inherited significant sums of money
- Are Newly married, divorced or widowed
- Started a business
- Disabled or responsible for a disabled parent or child
- Any other significant life event
Real Estate, Title & Closing
Not all closing agents are created equal. Many title companies are not run by attorneys. Why trust your closing to a title company when you can have a lawyer handle your transaction for the same cost? Buying or selling real estate is a major event and you deserve qualified representation.
At the McKillop Law Firm we represent buyers and sellers, issue title insurance, perform real estate closings and act as an escrow agent for our clients, all for about what you would pay a title company. You do have a choice.
Even For Sale By Owner, do-it-yourself types should have a title insurance and closing company.
