Often a home is a person’s most significant asset, and it is important to plan what will happen to a home upon the death of the homeowner. In New Hampshire, a homeowner is not empowered to name a beneficiary to real estate within the deed evidencing the homeowner’s ownership of the property. Therefore, to ensure their home passes per their wishes, New Hampshire residents generally must expect their home will be subjected to the probate process or alternatively deed their property during their lifetimes to an entity (like a trust or business organization) or directly to their beneficiaries.
