My brother and I will each inherit two rental properties and possibly $50K in cash from our mother when she passes away. The properties and accounts are in a trust for my brother and I and state if we die before our mother that our inheritance will go to our children. I am in a second marriage, and assuming I will be living when my mother passes away, I would like for the properties I inherit to go to my only son when I die. What rights does my husband have in relation to the inherited properties? Also, if I keep the cash in a separate account in my name and my son as the beneficiary, what rights does my husband have in relation to the cash? Are there any steps that I should take to ensure my son will inherit the properties that I inherit from my mom? Will having the money in a separate account in my name prevent my husband from getting the cash when I die?
