Americans (and especially Michiganders) tend to be a do-it-yourself crowd. Why should we pay for something we can do ourselves? A plumber would probably answer that the cost of fixing a botched DIY job tends to be a lot more than hiring a professional in the first place. For a beneficiary trying to resolve a botched DIY estate planning job, though, the stakes can be much higher. In worst case scenarios, a person’s dying wishes could even be rendered moot because of a failure to properly record them.
The attorneys at Noud & Noud provide comprehensive estate planning services to clients with a variety of needs and priorities. Many of our clients want to leave property to their children, yet want to protect and retain control during their lifetime. In this case, Noud & Noud may recommend a Lady Bird Deed.
