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!

Igor B.

Answered Jun 7, 2022

Hello. In your case, a power of attorney should be: 1. Signed by your father, 2. Notarized, and 3. Attested by a witness who is not named as an agent. Although your father is under house arrest, it is possible to arrange the signing at his house.

Settlement And Release Agreement (OLD)

Pennsylvania

Asked on Aug 1, 2022

Must I sign a family settlement release for my fathers estate in PA in order for the executor to distribute monies?

My fathers exectutor is ready to finalize the estate bank account and I received a "release" letter, must I sign it before money is distributed? (PA)

Ryan W.

Answered Aug 5, 2022

In Pennsylvania, probate estates are wrapped up after the executor provides the beneficiaries with an accounting. The purpose is for the beneficiaries to review what the executor did during the administration of the estate and have the opportunity to voice any objections he or she may have. The release that you received is fairly standard in the estate administration process. You are not required to sign the document. The estate can also be finalized by requesting an order of distribution from a judge. If you do not happen to take issue with anything the executor did, signing the release agreement will likely be more efficient.

Quick, user friendly and one of the better ways I've come across to get ahold of lawyers willing to take new clients.

View Trustpilot Review

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.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
