Family Transfers

Many aspects of family law require the transfer of property, and the lawyers at Mills & Mills LLP will assist our clients to ensure that these transactions are completed properly. Whether gifting a family cottage to loved ones or transferring a home under a divorce settlement, our lawyers will advise clients on the best way to carry out the transaction in order to meet their goals and ensure the most favorable tax outcome for all relevant parties.

Real Estate Considerations in Estate Law – Estate Transfers & Survivorship Applications

When creating an estate plan, an important consideration is the structure of asset ownership. Taking this into account early on will ultimately help to keep probate costs down and prevent unnecessary difficulties for estate trustees later on. Our estate lawyers have the necessary expertise to provide advice to clients in this regard, and they will work with our real estate group to execute any related transactions. Our lawyers treat these transactions with the same attention to detail as they would any other real estate transaction. Our clients value the comfort of knowing that, as a result of the level of service we provide, their interests are protected and that their loved ones will be taken care of.
