Estate planning can help avoid conflicts among family members

Most Delaware residents know that conflicts are inevitable in families. However, those conflicts do not need to arise after a loved one has passed away and the time has come to divide the estate. Situations like this are when estate planning is invaluable.

Residential real estate issues: Encroachment

It is said that good fences make good neighbors, but knowing whose property the fence is on can be problematic. Some Delaware homeowners do not know the exact boundary lines of their property and could end up building on a neighbor's property. This residential real estate issue is defined as encroachment, and many people might not realize a problem exists until they are selling or buying property.

Common mistakes made regarding estate planning

Most Delaware residents would say that their lives are busy. Going to work, taking care of daily family obligations and other tasks can occupy a significant amount of time. Therefore, when it comes to estate planning, many people make the mistake of putting it off until it is too late or neglecting to ensure that the plan will provide for their loved ones in the manner they intended.

Executing the documents is not the end of estate planning

Many Delaware residents have already made arrangements for the disposition of their property after death and for their care in the event that they become incapacitated. However, just because the documents are executed does not mean that they can be put away and never looked at again. In fact, it is recommended that a periodic review of the documents be done in order to ensure that they still fulfill an individual's estate planning needs.
