Cabin Planning

Preserving Your Family Cabin For Future Generations

A family cabin is often the centerpiece to important, lasting memories. Making sure that your cabin remains in good hands, however, can prove difficult without proper planning. Fortunately, with a bit of legal foresight, you can make sure that your loved ones can enjoy your cabin for many years to come.

At Scott + Hespen Law, PLLC, we understand that a comprehensive estate plan should consider what becomes of cabins and vacation properties. We have a wealth of experience in helping Minnesotans protect their cabins for future enjoyment, and we can help you as well.

Avoiding Potential Problems Down The Road

As a family cabin can be a cherished piece of property, how it is cared for can become contentious in the event of the owner’s death. By creating a cabin trust, you can prevent any future uncertainty and tension. This type of trust allows you to:

  • Create clear guidelines for cabin use
  • Protect your cabin against divorce
  • Determine maintenance responsibilities
  • Outline equity and tax scenarios

A little planning can often go a long way. Thinking about and plan for the longevity and vitality (and stress-free transfer of ownership) now gives your family the peace of mind they need to enjoy the property without worrying about for the future. We will create a custom plan that provides the right solution for you and your family for generations to come. Cabin and vacation home planning is an important part of a well-crafted estate plan.
