The liquidation of stocks, bonds, cash, and real estate during the estate settlement process can be complex. However, wealth managers and attorneys both agree that one of the most difficult and stressful issues that face wealthy individuals and families is the equitable distribution of valuable tangible personal property. The orderly distribution of valuable personal property can be emotionally charged and careful attention to the details is necessary as well.
It goes without saying that many times, while a benefactor's intentions may be clear, without a carefully thought out and documented plan and the proper tools needed to facilitate that plan, the intentions and outcome unfortunately can be very different. Sadly, this can lead to both a contentious and stressful environment within a family.
