Keeping it in the Family: Vacation Properties and Estate Planning Webinar

May 31, 2022

As we approach the Summer holidays, we look forward to spending quality time at the cottage or cabin with family. For many of us, the family cottage or cabin represents much more than a vacation home: it’s a sacred place filled with cherished memories.

A word to the wise: this strong emotional attachment we feel towards the family cottage or cabin can translate into challenging circumstances if we do not properly plan for its succession.

Join us for a 45-minute webinar where Aviso Wealth* Tax & Estate Specialist, Doug Carroll, looks at interpersonal, tax and legal challenges related to cottage and cabin succession. Doug will also offer some insurance options with the goal of helping protect family wealth and preserving family harmony.
