QPRT

What is a QPRT?

A Qualified Personal Residence Trust or QPRT is an Irrevocable Trust specifically designed to take advantage of IRS rules to remove the value of the Grantor’s home from the taxable estate.

What is a QPRT’s Purpose?

A QPRT can freeze the value of the Grantor’s residence as of the transfer into the Trust. The home is given to the trust, but the Grantor retains the right to live in the home. This retained right makes the QPRT a Grantor Trust. The trust is designed to last a certain number of years, and, if the Grantor outlives this time, the home passes to the beneficiaries. Because the gift is of a future interest, the value of the gift is reduced. If successful, the real estate passes to the beneficiaries using a fraction of the Grantor’s exemption.

Peter is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs. Peter was very knowledgeable in estate planning matters, able to define the best solution for the situation. Additionally, he was congenial and able to communicate effectively to my senior citizen parents the benefits of estate planning. He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.
