A Will is a legal document that provides direction for how a decedent intends to distribute their assets upon their death. Many times, people avoid considering the different options available through the probate process out of a fear of thinking about their own death.
A person without a will at the time of death is said to have died intestate. When a person dies intestate, the State will then follow the intestacy guidelines governing how to distribute intestate assets to heirs based on relation and bloodline.
Realistically, executing a Will for the disposition of one’s assets is an important part of planning the future of your estate; as it is always better to have your intentions for the disposition of your assets to be memorialized in an executed Will, rather than have the State determine the disposition of your assets. Probate is the process of identifying and gathering the assets of the deceased person, paying their debts, and distributing the assets to his or her beneficiaries.
Many considerations must be made prior to setting forth the distribution of one’s assets following their death, and often times other legal documents are more suitable for particular situations. It is important to discuss your situation with an experienced attorney, and determine what is best for you be it a Will or Trust instrument.
If you or a loved have concerns or questions about the future of your estate, call Blick Law Firm today. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation with attorney Michael Blickensderfer. Think quick, call Blick!
A common question asked by personal injury clients is: “Will I have to go to court?” While Blick Law Firm will diligently prepare your case, there is no guarantee that the client will be exempt from going to trial for a personal injury matter.
Though most personal injury cases are settled between parties during pre-trial settlement negotiations, some cases will go to court if the parties fail to settle on an amount suitable for both parties. If a court date is set, the two parties could still negotiate and reach a settlement, even as late as the day of the hearing.
It is important that you know that only you have the authority to agree on a settlement on your claim. Tampa Lawyers can only advise you on a settlement figure and have no authority to settle your case without your express permission to do so.
If you have a personal injury issue and need help, call Blick Law Firm today at 813-931-0840. Make an appointment for a free 15 minute consultation with Attorney Michael Blickensderfer to assess your legal claim.
Bank of America test pilots ‘Mortgage to Lease Program’ letting those facing foreclosure rent their home
Bank of America launched a pilot program offering some of its mortgage customers who are facing foreclosure a chance to stay in their homes by becoming renters instead of owners.
About 1000 homeowners facing foreclosure in Nevada, Arizona and New York are test piloting this “Mortgage to Lease” Program offered by the bank.
Underwater homeowners who are struggling to make hefty mortgage payments are giving their homes to the bank and turning around and renting for up to three years at a lower monthly cost. If the program is successful, it may be rolled out in other states.
How to qualify for the program?
Participants must be at least 60 days behind on their mortgage, have a deficiency in the loan to value, no second mortgage, exhausted their mortgage-modification alternatives and make enough income to pay the rent. *The loan must be owned by Bank of America.
The goal of this program by Bank of America?
The goal is to see potential benefits from helping to stabilize housing prices in the surrounding community as well as, curtail neighborhood blight by keeping a portion of distressed properties off the market.
Homeowners can’t apply for the program. If you qualify, Bank of America will contact you. Fannie Mae has a similar program, though it is not widely used.
Will this program work?
Depends on the homeowner’s individual circumstance. While some might want to stay in their home, others might be better off moving.
How will the bank benefit?
Bank of America will avoid costs of foreclosure and earn money when the home is eventually sold.
Although this program is not yet available in Florida, contact a Tampa real estate attorney today to discuss your housing options. Attorney Michael Blickensderfer is experienced and able to assist you with your short sale transactions, loan modification or foreclosure defense. Call us today at 813-931-0840.
