Homestead The California Homestead laws protect a person’s home from non-mortgage creditor claims in and out of bankruptcy. The homestead laws are part of a broader set of laws called exemptions. In addition to the homestead, the exemption laws protect household goods, furniture, vehicles, retirement and much more. The homestead is the largest exemption and protects the most important asset, your home. As good as that sounds, the homestead has conditions and limitations. Your Home – The homestead only applies to real estate you own and live in. You do not need to be the only owner to claim the homestead.

Amy’s Bright Advice

 How Do You Define Success? Success is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame.

We need to ask ourselves questions in order to evaluate whether we have reached a stature of successfulness, but also … [Read more...]

Lucky for me, I am off on assignment to a new place in town that everyone is talking about. Since I am a fan of Buffalo Wild Wings, this was a snap to find. Brentwood Outdoor Living is located right behind the restaurant and can be seen as you enter … [Read more...]
