It is a common misconception that estate planning only involves putting one’s affairs in order so that the estate can be properly distributed when a person passes away. However, estate planning can also include deed preparation, which helps to ensure that the right person has a proper claim to an asset. In short, a deed is a document that establishes legal ownership of property.
