Rules for Homesteads

Rules for Homesteads

In some states, there are special rules for who can inherit your homestead. If you have a spouse, minor children, or both, you may not be able to leave the home to anyone but them. Homestead laws in some states cannot be claimed by creditors of the estate. If you have a spouse or minor children and plan to leave your homestead to anyone but them, you should see a lawyer.
