Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning & Elder Law

 

parentsWills, trusts, estate planning, and reverse mortgages  and all that stuff can be a very confusing topic. People often make decisions about their estate plan (or lack thereof) on “things” they have heard from other people, who mean well but typically have no knowledge of the law here in Massachusetts. Usually, these “things” people hear third-hand are untrue or inaccurate, and can lead to unfortunate consequences.

  • Health Care Proxies
  • Reverse Mortgages *

* A Reverse Mortgage is a loan, or line of credit for homeowners over 62 years of age that use the home’s equity as collateral.  The amount borrowed generally does not have to be repaid until the last surviving homeowner permanently moves out of the property or passes away.  At that time, the estate has approximately 9 months or so to repay the balance of the amount owed or sell the home to pay it off.   The estate ( or heirs)  are not personally liable if the home sells for less than the balance of the amount owed!!!.
