    Is your cottage law practice specific to Michigan law and administrative procedures? My mother passed away last year with a cottage on Cape Cod to be passed or partitioned to her 5 children, and at least 2 want to cash out, which leaves those who want to keep the property with 20% down payments on a mortgage finance transaction. We’re interested in having a 3rd party serve as an intermediary for valuation and usage rights (July and August are prime months, with June and September as prime shoulder season) to avoid any bad feelings among siblings. Is this something you’ve done for other clients?

    I have a beach condo in Jacksonville FL and want to know how best to leave it to my successors (3 ) in my will. Three children are main successors but grandchildren are in the mix. I read your article in Bottomline issue 4/15/17 . You advertised “A Guide to Succesion Planning for Your Cottage…, etc. Is this still available? You brought up topics of Concern and interest that I’m interested in acting upon. If book is still available, I would like to purchase.

    Hi Mark,
    I have emailed David Fry in the past year or two with some questions about buying my mother in-laws cottage. Since he has retired I would like to know if we could set up a consultation on this matter. My wife and I along with my son and his wife will be purchasing the cottage. Could you please let me know when you are available and what the costs are for the consult. Thank you Dennis Warren
