It’s important to rely on a professional when adding real property into a trust. One costly mistake that can happen is when property deeds aren’t recorded, but properties are transferred into trusts. Occasionally, people fail to transfer title to the property by deed from one trust to another trust or simply from themselves into a trust.
While after much litigation on a specific case eventually led to a watershed ruling in which the intent of a person matters more than technical rules, that doesn’t mean situations like these aren’t arguable in court. For many years if there was no transfer of title on a property, then it didn’t matter if a property was listed in a trust. Now, things are a little easier, but there is no reason to even have to deal with any of this. If you are transferring real property into a trust, make sure to record that properly. It’s best to use a professional to avoid hassles and costs for your beneficiaries down the road.
