Creating a Land Trust in the Greater Chicago Area

Estate Planning Attorneys with 20+ Years of Experience

A land trust is a legal agreement by which one individual, known as a trustee, is appointed to maintain the ownership of a piece of land for another, known as a beneficiary. Land trusts are used by a variety of organizations, such as nonprofit entities, corporations, and investment groups, as well as individuals who accumulate larger portions of land.

Having this legal agreement in place is often an excellent way to handle real estate ownership, and provides a wide range of benefits. Attorneys at Consumer Legal Group, P.C. have over 20 years of experience in the field, and can help both organizations and individuals create land trusts that adequately meet their property management needs.

  • Some of the benefits that land trusts can provide individuals and entities include:
  • Privacy, as the trust agreement is not a matter of public record for everyone to see
  • Being protected from liens, as real estate titled in a trust name is not subject to liens against the beneficiary
  • Keeping matters, such as sale price and change of ownership a secret
  • Avoiding the probate process upon death
  • Giving you a better chance of avoiding lawsuits
