Texas Property Inheritance Lawyer Helps Heirs, Beneficiaries, and Families Sell, Claim, and Transfer Texas Houses, Businesses, and other Texas Inherited Real Property by Texas Property Inheritance Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

After a family member dies, their real property or business can become stuck in the inheritance process and if proper action is not taken the wealth can be lost to foreclosure, taxes, competitors, non-family members, family members who are not entitled to the property, or the State of Texas. For more information about selling, claiming, or transferring Texas property inheritance, please go to the following web pages:   Texas Real Estate Partition Lawyer and Texas Forced Sale Lawyer Information, Texas Land Partition Lawyer Information, and Texas Stressed Property Lawyer Information.

The Lack of Proper Estate Planning Can Often Cause Real Property, Businesses, and Other Estate Property to Become Stuck Through the Texas Probate Process Requiring A Texas Property Inheritance Lawyer

Many people do not like to think about their own death and do not have a valid Will or Trust.  Others try to save money by writing their own Wills with a "do it yourself" Will Kit.  Unfortunately, many of these "do it yourself" Wills and Hand Written Wills are done incorrectly and are not valid.  Others go to a bank or an estate planning lawyer and obtain Trusts that they do not fully understand.  In many of these situations, the Trusts are not properly funded or updated and significant property is left out.  
In all of these situations, improper estate planning can cause wealth including real property and businesses to be trapped or lost. 

Improper estate planning is extremely problematic when a person with a business, a house, a second home, a vacation home, mineral interests, or other significant wealth dies or becomes incapacitated as large amounts of wealth can become stuck.  In these situations, families and beneficiaries often lack the information and resources they need to identify all sources of wealth and revenue streams as there is no accurate inventory or accounting of the deceased person's wealth.  It is also common for vultures including caretakers, health care providers, banks, financial managers, oil companies, and other opportunists to start taking wealth.   Typically, in situations where improper estate planning has been done on a large estate, a Texas Property Inheritance Lawyer is needed to help locate and identify assets as well as determine how to claim, sell, and transfer these assets.

Many Families have Spread Out Across The United States, Therefore it is Often Helpful to Hire a Texas Probate Lawyer to Assist with the Texas Probate Process and to Handle Estate Issues

Many families have spread out throughout the United States and around the World.  For the family member that lives out of the state (or out of the country) and has never been through the Texas probate process, it can often be challenging to understand what should be done under Texas probate law.  At a time when they want to grieve the loss of their loved one, they are often forced to deal with difficult issues including:

    1) Who should be in control of their loved ones' estate?
    2) What needs to be done to have an administrator or executor appointed?
    3) What are probate & non-probate property?
    4)  What should be done to protect estate property?
    5)  Is a Will necessary?
    6)  What can be done with Estate property?  Can it be sold or transferred?

When faced with these decisions, it is often helpful to speak with and hire a Texas interstate probate lawyer to help take care of Texas probate issues.  A Texas interstate probate lawyer can help out of state family members through the probate process and help move an estate through probate.  Texas Interstate Probate Lawyer, Jason Coomer, commonly works with out of state family, heirs, lawyers, and beneficiaries to guide them through the Texas probate process.  In doing so, he works to protect the wishes of loved ones that have passed on, the best interests of his clients, and to coordinate efforts with out of state co-counsel.
