There’s a good reason why homestead litigation is a recurring theme for probate practitioners; it’s a non-intuitive thicket of complexity that can trip up even the best and brightest. A good first step in making sense of this complexity is to work through a trustworthy chart that graphically summarize the key “do’s” and “don’ts” in a single easy-to-read snapshot. To that end I have two favorite charts. The first is Kelley’s Homestead Paradigm, by attorney Rohan Kelley, and the second is Restrictions on Transfers of Florida Homestead Property, by attorney Charles Rubin. Both are reliable, user-friendly tools for the practicing probate lawyer. Good stuff, highly recommended.
