Family Cottages/Land

Family cottage estate planning is important when transferring the family cabin or recreational land to the next generation. Owners of a family cottage, cabin, hunting land, or vacation home need to consider a Cottage Trust or Family Limited Liability Company to address the various issues:

  • Our children & grandchildren are all different
  • Multiple owners = disagreements
  • Use(s) of the cottage/ land
  • Payment of taxes & expenses
  • Upkeep of the cottage/land
  • A family member does not want to inherit part of the cottage/land?
  • Creditor issues
  • Divorce issues
  • A family member wants to sell the cottage I land
  • Funding – setting aside money to assist the family to pay for the cottage/land
