Estate Planning – Trusts and Wills

Do you have a will, power of attorney for health care and or financial needs?  Do you know that with a will you still have to go through the court to probate the estate?  Do you realize that there are tax consequences that differ whether you are leaving your property in a trust or a will?  Do you know who will take care of your loved ones, old and young, in the event something happens to you to prevent you from caring for them?  If you have not, the decision will be left to the court and may leave your family fighting over who should have the right to make decisions for your children or elderly parents.  To learn more about what you should do to protect your assets and loved ones, you should click here.

Eminent Domain

When NCDOT takes your land, they are supposed to pay you “just compensation”. The same is true when it’s

  • a city, town or county taking your land
  • a public utility, like Progress Energy or PSNC, running a line through your property or
  • a school board, an airport authority, or some other transportation authority.

The law may let them take your property, but it also requires them to pay you just compensation.  But eminent domain law in North Carolina is very different than in other other states. It has its own special rules and procedures about what “just compensation” means and how you have to prove how much you are owed. How much money you can get depends a lot on just who is taking your land and what kind of project they are taking it for. To learn more about how we can help make sure you get all of the just compensation you are owed, you should click here.
