About the Presentation
Topics to be discussed include how estates are handled in the state of New York, what shareholders can do to create a more seamless process to protect their assets, and the forms and uses of trusts available to the shareholders of Morningside Gardens. Throughout the presentation, Roberts will answer questions from attendees.
“Often, co-op shareholders forget the importance of including the cooperatives when thinking about their estate planning and trust administration, so I feel it is crucial to let them know that they have options and we’re here to help,” said Roberts.
