Holland Bare Trust Information

Are You Thinking About Setting Up a Bare Trust?

If you are considering setting up a bare trust to convey property to your children or grandchildren, getting the advice of a Holland attorney skilled in bare trusts can help you determine if such a trust is the right tool for achieving your wishes.

Use a Bare Trust to Transfer Property to Your Loved Ones

In a bare trust, or simple trust, the beneficiary has the complete right to the capital and assets within the trust and the income generated by the assets. Assets of the trust are held in the name of a trustee, who must manage them to maximum the benefit for the beneficiaries. The trustee has no control over the trust's income or capital and must act according to the beneficiary's instructions. The beneficiary is entitled to take ownership and control of the trust property.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Bare Trust Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
