LA Trust Estate Litigation | Working with Realtors

How do you go about correctly choosing a Realtor® to be a part of your team when resolving Los Angeles trust and estate litigation? This is an important question in the Los Angeles real estate market. The estate, trust and probate litigation attorneys at Hackard Law know that the choice of a Realtor® should not be left to chance.

It doesn't take long when working to resolve real property trust litigation for the trustee and beneficiaries to realize the importance of an expedited procedure in the pricing, marketing and sale of a Los Angeles home. Lawyers that represent abused beneficiaries want information like a comparative market analysis (CMA) for estimating value and projections on the costs of sale. Beneficiary lawyers also want trust and estate settlement agreements that provide for the efficient sale of a property. A part of protecting a party to a settlement agreement is the inclusion of irrevocable escrow instructions that insure a timely distribution of sales proceeds to the settlement parties.

Hackard Law is often asked to assist clients in finding a qualified Realtor® to list and sell a Los Angeles area home involved in a probate, trust or estate dispute. We start this process by interviewing real estate brokers and agents experienced in the estate area. We ask that the candidates meet with our clients to determine our clients' preference. This works well. I'll mention a recent example.

Our attorneys have found Anngel Benoun of Dilbeck Real Estate to be particularly helpful in working with fiduciaries, attorneys, trust administrators and beneficiaries. Realtors® like Anngel experienced in effectuating trust settlement agreements help to facilitate a transparent process for the settlement parties to communicate with Broker, Title and Escrow services. This is important, since settlement agreements arise out of disputes, and disputes arise out of distrust. When things are finally resolved, it is important that the process of listing, sale, and the timely distribution of proceeds be clear to all involved.

Hackard Law and its trust litigation attorneys represent Los Angeles area clients in trust, probate and estate disputes. If you would like to talk with a Hackard Law attorney about your rights in an estate lawsuit or elder financial abuse matter call us at 213-357-5200. We'll be happy to speak with you.
