People 62 years or older can benefit from a reverse mortgage, improving their quality of life by taking money out of their home equity. You will not have to pay another mortgage payment for as long as you live, and withdrawals or annuities are not taxed. It can mean the difference between living near poverty or enjoying a decent lifestyle during your "golden years."
These mortgages are federally controlled and legitimate. (The only downside is that there will be little or no equity to pass on to future generations.) The Law Office of Lawrence L. Hale can advise clients on the pros and cons and assists in obtaining a reverse mortgage from a reputable broker.
In the absence of an enforceable will or trust, the estate of the decedent goes into probate and is handled according to Massachusetts state law which has changed to the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code as adopted by several other states. A probate court will consider motions and requests by surviving family members, potential beneficiaries, and representatives of the estate. Our office represents heirs and personal representatives in routine probate and estate disputes involving will contests and challenges to trust administrations. We also assist personal representatives in all duties of settling a loved one's estate, including.
Lawrence L. Hale has practiced law in Massachusetts for more than 39 years, and served the community of Carver and surrounding areas since 1989. He offers free legal advice to seniors at The Carver Council on Aging the second Thursday of each month.
