Houston Trust Used for Homestead or Nonhomestead

Experienced Houston Trust and Homestead vs. Nonhomestead Attorneys

A homestead property is typically a person's primary residence, and it is protected from creditors under state law. A non-homestead property is any other property that is not considered a homestead property. When it comes to estate planning, it is important to understand the difference between homestead and non-homestead properties, as they may be treated differently under the law.

At our law firm, we have a team of experienced estate planning attorneys who can help you determine the best trust structure for your homestead and non-homestead properties. We understand that every individual and family has unique circumstances, and we work closely with you to develop a customized plan that addresses your specific concerns and objectives.

Benefits of a Homestead Trust

  • Protects Your Primary Residence: A homestead trust can protect your primary residence from creditors, bankruptcy proceedings, and other potential threats.

  • Maintains Your Eligibility for Homestead Exemptions: By transferring your primary residence to a homestead trust, you can maintain your eligibility for homestead exemptions and other tax benefits.


Benefits of a Non-Homestead Trust

  • Protects Non-Homestead Properties: A non-homestead trust can protect your non-homestead properties, such as investment properties, vacation homes, and rental properties, from creditors, bankruptcy proceedings, and other potential threats.

  • Minimizes Estate Taxes: A non-homestead trust can help minimize estate taxes and other costs associated with the transfer of assets after your death.
