First of all, what is a Quit Claim Deed? It is an easy way to get someone who is on your title, off your title so you can have complete ownership of a real estate property. To understand more, watch the video on the David Band youtube channel.
First, meet with David Band to go through where the two of you are in terms of your relationship with each other, what you own together and who you are a part of together, (family and businesses). Watch the video, then make an appointment with us to get it done.
If you have a will before you pass, it will eliminate the need for a succession. Successions can take time and be quite complicated. It is alot easier to have your family (or whomever else) be clear about who gets what after you pass instead of having to hash out the details with an attorney later. If you do have to work things out without a will, in the state of Louisiana, you will have to open up a succession. David Band can help you with this process.
Depending on the complexity of the assets of the deceased, and the number of survivors and their willingness or ability to agree, the time to get a succession completed can vary. Make sure to have a strong, experienced team of legal professsionals on your side to help you through this process.
