Toronto, Ontario – April 12, 2013 – Tips to Buying Real Estate in Florida

On April 12, 2013 Canada AM, television’s morning star and Canada’s most watched national morning newsmagazine, invited Altro LLP’s Managing Partner David A. Altro to their CTV studio for a live on-air interview.

In light of BMO Private Bank’s recent report on Canadian buying trends in Florida, Host Marci Ien interviewed Florida Attorney & Canadian Legal Advisor David Altro who specializes in cross border tax, estate planning and real estate. The interview focused on what Canadian viewers need to know before buying in the U.S. so that they can minimize or eliminate probate and avoid double taxation. David also illustrated the differences between owning U.S. property as vacation property or rental property.
