Interviewer: Becky, should you consider having a trust when you have property in multiple states?
Becky Cholewka: Absolutely. One of the main reasons for that is to avoid probate in multiple jurisdictions.
If you have property here in Arizona, you can potentially be going through probate here. If you also have a home in California, you’re going to be potentially going through probate there. If you have a time share with deeded property in South Carolina like I do, there’s another probate you may have there.
We can wrap all of these properties into your trust so that you can completely avoid probate in all of these jurisdictions, which is going to save a lot of time and money for your family.
