I am planning to include my son on a piece of real estate property.

Resolved Question:

I am planning to include my son on a piece of real estate property. He is currently single.
Hopefully if he gets married in the future he would have a prenup. How can I protect myself
if he would get married and meet his untimely demise (with no prenup). Would his then wife
get his share of the property? Could I have a legal agreement between him and myself that he has to get a prenup before marriage or the property reverts back to me?

Good evening. You can do one of two things....i) you can own it as joint tenants with right of survivorship so that if one of you dies, 100% ownership of the property automatically vests in the surviving owner...that covers you in the event of death; or ii) you can put a reversion provision in the deed that as long as your alive, if your son gets married without a prenuptial agreement...although this property will still be his sole and separate property even after marriage...that his interest automatically reverts to you.



I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
