This book explains the rules for transferring property interests during the owner's life and at his or her death. In addition to transfers covered by wills and trusts, it covers transfers by intestate succession, by outright gift, and by beneficiary designation. Discussion includes the transferor's goals, the potential roadblocks to meeting those goals, and default rules that may apply when the transferor failed to consider those roadblocks. Students will see how the various ways for transferring property resemble each other, how they differ, and how they interact with each other. This book includes numerous examples illustrating the relevant concepts.
