Some bequests are quite unusual and a new television show seeks to highlight how those who inherit unusual items handle them.
What would you do if you inherited a 900-acre bug museum? Most people probably would not know where to begin dealing with such an unusual bequest. It does not seem like something you could just list for sale in the usual places.
If you are curious how real people have handled such an inheritance and other unusual inheritances, then a new television show should interest you. Fox Business News has announced that it will begin airing “Strange Inheritance” on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 9 pm Est. The show will air Monday through Thursday with new episodes scheduled for Mondays and Tuesdays.

Shows about inheritances and estate planning are not common. That should make this show a must watch if you are interested in these subjects.
If nothing else, learning how other people have handled inheritances may help you handle yours some day or it may enlighten you on what not to do with your estate plan.
While you may not deal with anything so unusual that it would appear on this particular show, people tend to make the same mistakes in estate planning. Consequently, this show might teach you about commonly made mistakes and provide tips on how to avoid them.
On the other hand, you would be wise to consult an experienced estate planning attorney and avoid the mistakes all together.
Please contact our office today at 239-225-7911 to schedule an appointment with Barbara M. Pizzolato if you are interested in protecting your legacy and need to create or update your estate plan. You may also wish to attend one of our free seminars.
