I know that I'm going to need a Florida lawyer to answer this question. I'm looking for recommendations from people that may have done this already. Val & I are preparing for a move to Florida and have been thinking about how best to buy our retirement home while protecting our assets against the possibility of having a prolonged nursing home stay eat it all away. I understand that one of the ways to do this is to set up a trust to buy the house. So my question is, has anybody done this recently? Got a lawyer you would care to recommend? Feel free to PM.
