Trust and Estate Planning for Cabins, Boats and Other Family Recreational Assets

Clients frequently have substantial reactional assets that they want to pass in their estates – family cabins, mountain houses, other retreats, boats, and other assets. These assets may be held in full or in fractional interests, sometimes shared uncomfortably by different parts of a single family or with third parties, giving rise to issues of control, value, and transfer.

Any or all of these assets may have substantial financial value and almost always have emotional value to clients. Planning for these assets is a blend of property and tax law, but also practical counseling of clients.

This program provides a real world guide to trust and estate planning for recreational assets.
