Real Estate & Succession Registration, Planning & Management

Succession planning is an important part of the estate planning process. Decisions regarding family-owned real estate investments can sometimes be difficult, but starting early and seeking the professional advice of experts can certainly make things easier. When succession planning is an afterthought, options become limited and families can face pitfalls, experts say.
The best time to plan for a future transition is before a family is forced to decide out of necessity, such as in the case of an untimely death or incapacity. This can be especially important when there are multiple children, some of whom may not have been directly involved with running the investments.
Real estate and inheritance issues take a considerable proportion of family wealth management, and they are even more complicated since nowadays the population and personal properties are flowing between countries.
