I often hear from clients serious concerns about what to do with their home in their estate plan. Often at the top of their list is the desire to preserve a residence for one or more of their adult children. Part One of this 2-part series addressed ways to handle your home in your will in a way that preserves it as a residence for one of your children if they should need it.
Many clients also inquire about transferring their property to their children during their life, whether to maintain a residence for one of them, or in an attempt to protect against estate recovery by TennCare. Part Two addresses some of the methods of approaching this issue and the reasons why and why not you may want to make such a transfer.
Give your home out-right to your child during your life.
