You know that even the best designed estate plan can be ineffective without the proper re-titling of assets while the client is still able to do so. And upon a death, property must be distributed in accordance with that plan.
But when it comes to real property located outside your normal state of practice, it is a time-consuming challenge to get it done. Do you really want to spend your or your paralegal’s time tracking down an attorney in the state of the property who is willing to just prepare a deed for your client? Is the fee quoted reasonable? How much will they have to charge just to open a file for your client? Does the attorney do enough of this work to be competent and efficient? And how can you expect a simple deed to be a priority for that attorney?
Alternatively, you could simply advise your client to contact an attorney in the state of the property and get a deed prepared in accordance with your directions. But you know the chances are very low that the client will actually follow through, especially without a specific name to call. And if they do, will the client provide the correct name into which the property is to be transferred or have all of the other information necessary? Do you really want to be in the middle of that process, uncompensated for your time?
No searching. No wondering. No wasted time.
