<<We couldn't even give away the one we inherited from my FIL...


I wonder if it would've been easier to just disclaim that part of the inheritance. (Is a partial disclaim even possible?)


Imagine an attorney selling it and billing the estate for $200/hour for his time...

Seattle Pioneer

Don't even get me started. DO NOT BUY land in the state of Washington if you don't live in that state! It cost $1250.00 for a lawyer to put three piece of land though probate and two were in the living trust but we don't live in Washington. Two of those pieces of land were less than worthless....they are underwater! FIL liked to buy land sight unseen at auctions. The county knew they were worthless because the taxes were zero! We tried to give the land back to the county they were in but the paperwork was going to take over 6 months to a year and a lot of hoops to jump though. The only saving grace was the other property was actually worth something.
