As experienced elder law attorneys, we can help protect your property when faced with the high costs of nursing home care.
We can also help you protect your property and take advantage of substantial tax benefits through the use of a conservation easement. A conservation easement is essentially a restriction placed on a piece of property in order to protect its resources. As a landowner, you can place a conservation easement on your farm to prevent it from ever being subdivided or developed, or place a conservation easement on forested or open land to prevent its destruction. This protects its natural resources for the sake of posterity. Conservation easements also provide valuable federal and state tax benefits, including significant tax credits that can be sold for cash immediately, providing funds for you to use in any manner you choose.
PLEASE NOTE: As of 2021, we no longer handle real estate closing involving bank loans. We currently handle cash closings and gift transfers only.
