What Is Inheritance?

Inheritance is the practice of passing on wealth or obligations upon the death of an individual. Inheritance laws allow individuals including parents to pass land, businesses, stocks, jewelry, and other wealth to children and other people who they love. Each year in the United States over $250 Billion in wealth passes down through inheritance to heirs and beneficiaries. Further, the amount of wealth and inheritance that passes through inheritance will increase greatly in the next 20 years as Trillions of Dollars in wealth is passed on through inheritance as wealthy generations in the United States pass. Through Wills and intestate laws, Texas courts determine lawful heirs and beneficiaries as well as where wealth and inheritance is transferred. Through probate and inheritance laws a tremendous amount of wealth is lawfully transferred and some families successfully protect vast amounts of wealth. Unfortunately, many other families lose vast amounts of wealth. It is easy for inheritance to get stuck and lost. For this reason, estate planning can be helpful and it is often important for families to hire an inheritance lawyer after the death of a loved one. It is especially important for families with stuck or trapped inheritance to hire an experienced Texas inheritance lawyer to help free inheritance and wealth.

In our modern society families don't always live close and some wealth is lost or forgotten. Death or incapacity is not always anticipated and many people will unfortunately loose track of stocks, bank accounts, oil interests, and other wealth. It is a good idea to keep a safety deposit box with an inventory of all your assets and have people that you trust that can get access to your safety deposit box should something happen to you.

It is also a good idea to check to make sure that you or your family members do not have assets at Texas Unclaimed Property or other states' unclaimed property.

More specifically, heirs or beneficiaries often cannot sell inherited real property because they cannot clear title. This problem arises when a interest owner of Texas real property dies. The deceased’s interest typically transfers directly into their estate. Once the real property is in the estate, the heirs or beneficiaries must legally transfer the property out of the deceased’s estate. In many situations, the heirs and beneficiaries need to file a probate lawsuit to clear title to the property. For this reason, inherited Texas real property typically requires a Texas Inheritance Lawyer to file a probate lawsuit and transfer the interest caught in the estate.
