Documents to Transfer Real Estate from Living Trust
by: Mo Johnson

Hi Chip,

Sorry, but the documents required to be filed in the county recorder (or property) office vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Hopefully, the real estate was already properly transferred into the trust. If not, you might have go to probate court to make that happen.

But, assuming the property is in the trust, you may be able to simply go the recorder's office and obtain a form for the transfer. If that doesn't work, you will need to consult with a local living trust attorney.
