Quitclaim Deed

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 1, 2023

Taxes related to quitclaim deed?

I recently inherited a property from a family member. I was given a quitclaim deed transferring the title from them to me. I am trying to understand my tax liabilities related to this transfer of ownership. I am not sure if there are tax implications that I need to be aware of and I was hoping to get advice from a lawyer on how to proceed.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 30, 2023

A person who inherits property might be subject to taxes. This includes when the person receives a quitclaim deed for the property. However, the person's tax liabilities will ultimately depend in part on the location of the property itself. For legal guidance on the tax implications of inheriting North Carolina property, you might consider consulting with a knowledgeable North Carolina estate and tax planning attorney. Good luck!

Last Will and Testament

Florida

Asked on Apr 18, 2023

What is a will, and why is it important to have one?

I am a married adult with two children and I am looking to secure my family's future. I am concerned about what will happen to my assets and my family if something were to happen to me. I want to make sure that my wishes are respected and that my family is taken care of, so I am looking to learn more about wills and how they can help me.

Diane D.

Answered May 2, 2023

A will allows you to select the persons who you want to receive what you own when you die. Without a will, the court may step in and distribute your assets according to your state's law. With a will, you control what happens with your property, and you can leave specific property to specific persons, and you can appoint specific persons to manage and handle distributing your property. Having a Will can save your heirs significant expense during probate and prevent feuding among them.

Durable Power of Attorney for Finances

Illinois

Asked on Apr 19, 2023

What’s the Difference between General POA and Durable POA

I’m trying to get POA over my Mother Financial because she not Paying the Mortgage which is past over due along with some Bills she hasn’t paid on in months I don’t us to lose our home and she suffers from Dementia and we Both recently suffered from a stroke I would appreciate if you respond to my message beside With a Hi There !

T. Phillip B.

Answered Jun 3, 2023

I'm not a fan of either term as I find they just confuse things. Durable usually is referring that it remains effective after incapacity. Sometimes general is looked at as terminating at becoming incapacitated. Another term which comes up is springing which this one makes more sense where it isn't effective immediately but upon a date or occurrence (usually someone being deemed incapacitated). I don't think I'd ever create a POA where it terminates at incapacity since that's when I'd need it to work. Now you say your mother has dementia. Will she understand what she is signing and the purpose of the document? If not, she doesn't have the required mental capacity to establish a POA and will have to have a guardian appointed by the court.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
