Legal Challenges with the Family Cottage

Archive Now Available!

Marni Pernica and Melanie A. Yach

Date: Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. ET

The family cottage – your home away from home. While this property is most often recognized as a place of relaxation, there are many complex legal factors that go along with ownership. Is it a shared property with multiple owners? Is it used as a rental property? What are the tax issues involved? How should assets from the estate be divided upon the owners death?

In this webinar, our panel of experts discuss:

  • Death and taxes
  • Cottage sharing among siblings and family members
  • Use and abuse of property
  • Cottage B&Bs and cottages as vacation properties
  • Structuring ownership on death and the division of assets
