After a loved one dies, many Maryland residents become concerned about what will happen to that loved one's property and assets. If the deceased created an estate plan, determining the distribution of assets may be relatively simple, which can ease the family's burden. Though estate planning offers many benefits like this, numerous individuals have not taken the time to create even a basic plan.
The reasons for not creating a plan can vary from person to person. Of course, there are some reasons that tend to come up more than others. For instance, some individuals may think that because they do not have many assets to distribute that creating a plan is not necessary. However, even the smallest piece of property could cause conflict for the surviving family.
