Declaration of Homestead
By signing a legal document known as a homestead declaration, Montanans can protect up to $250,000 in value of a home against most creditors’ claims. A homestead is the house or mobile home that a person lives in and land on which it sits. The property must be a person’s primary residence for it to be eligible for a homestead declaration. For more information on using a Homestead Declaration to Protect Your Home from Creditors, visit www.msuextension.org or see a local Title Company.
