Inherited Property

When a loved one passes away, the task of figuring out what to do with an inherited property can seem overwhelming. Beneficiaries typically choose one of three options—live in the property, rent it, or sell it—but the decision may not be easy during times of emotional stress.

Whether you know your next move with the property or want more options, we can help.

When you inherit a property, you might also inherit a mortgage and property-related tax liabilities. Be sure to work with a team of trusted advisors who can help you understand your legal and financial options and ensure you receive the most favorable tax treatment for your situation.

Inherited property can bring a lot of emotional and logistical stress:

  • Grieving the loss of a relative while worrying about financial responsibilities

  • Facing a co-inheritance with family members who disagree

  • Overwhelmed by the prospect of making property repairs and decisions

  • Competing priorities leave you with insufficient time to think and plan
