Do no-contest clauses prevent all will contests?

There are many reasons why loved ones may feel unsettled about the manner in which a recently-passed family member distributed his or her assets. Some parties may think that they were unjustly disinherited, and others may think that someone took advantage of the loved one for personal gain. In these cases, it is not unusual for will contests to take place.

It may not pay to be picky during real estate transactions

When looking to buy a house, many New York residents often want to find the perfect place. As they first start out, they may find themselves being immensely picky over certain details, but if they continue on in this manner, they may find that their dreams of owning a home are taking longer to achieve than desired. Therefore, they may want to find ways to look on the bright side of certain issues and hopefully allow their real estate transactions to move forward more quickly.

Estate planning mistakes can lead to estate litigation

Estate planning is an important step for New York readers, no matter a person's income level or the value of his or her estate. When a person does not have the basic elements of an estate plan in place, such as a will, it can lead to complications. However, with a plan, problems can still arise and cause complications for the family.

Legal grounds are necessary for will contests to proceed

If New York residents feel that their loved ones' final wishes are not being followed, they may not know what their legal options are. If individuals believe that a document was created without the proper authority or that it does not reflect a family member's true wishes, it is possible that legal action may be necessary. Will contests can help ensure that deceased loved ones' wishes are honored. However, there must be specific reason for this legal action to take place.

Surprise property distributions may lead to will contests

In some cases, when a family member dies, the surviving loved ones may feel shocked when they learn about how his or her remaining estate will be distributed. In an ideal scenario, New York family members would have discussed estate plans and knew what to expect when the loved one passed away, but that is not always the case. In fact, surprise property distributions can sometimes lead to will contests.

Consider these factors when looking at commercial property

When choosing the right type of investment, it can take a great deal of thought. New York residents certainly do not want to end up in a situation that leads to more losses than profits. While commercial property can prove lucrative in many situations, it is wise to consider various aspects before investing.
